Turkey taco salad

This is a very quick, very tasty, very satisfying meal. I made it for lunch one bank holiday Monday and it definitely won't be the last time. In fact, I think it would be very do-able as a work lunch, taking one container of salad veg and one container of the turkey chilli, and microwaving it.

I sauteed a small chopped onion in a splash of oil and added 1tbs of ground coriander, 1tbs of ground cumin and 1tsp hot smoked paprika, then browned minced turkey thighs in the spice mixture. I added a spoonful of chipotle in adobo and a bit of water and let it simmer until it was almost dry, then stirred through a handful of chopped coriander leaves.

In our big meal-sized noodle bowls I piled chopped little gem lettuce, avocado and tomatoes, and squeezed a bit of lemon juice over it. I divided the hot turkey chilli between the bowls and topped them with a spoonful of fat-free yoghurt and a small grating of cheese.

I should cook turkey more often! They also happen to be relatively cheap compared to other meats.
