  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water

Instructions

  • Cook brown rice according to package directions, adding the lime zest and salt to the cooking water. Allow to cool slightly before portioning out.
  • Add turkey to a medium pan and cook over medium heat, breaking it up with a spatula until no longer pink (approximately 10 minutes).
