This Taco Bake is delicious and healthy. It’s perfect for Keto, Paleo, gluten-free and Faster Way to Fat Loss.


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoon Taco Seasoning (I make homemade see recipe below)
  • 1 teaspoon Ancho Chile Pepper
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 (3.8 oz.) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1/2 can refined beans
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • A handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup sharp shredded cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 3 Tortilla shells, gluten-free or 100% whole wheat


  1. Start by browning turkey burger. After a few minutes season with taco seasoning and ancho chile pepper.
  2. Next add minced garlic, onion, and green bell pepper and cook until turkey burger is thoroughly cooked.
  3. Add salsa to skillet and mix well.
  4. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray (I use avocado spray). Lay 3 tortilla shells in the bottom of the dish. You will need to cut one in half to fit.
  5. Spread a layer of refined beans onto tortilla shells. Next spread cooked turkey burger mixture over beans.
  6. Sprinkle cheese over mixture. Omit for dairy free and FWTFL.
  7. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with shredded iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cilantro.
  8. Dollop with refried beans and greek yogurt.


Omit dairy for FWTFL. Omit tortilla shells and beans for Keto.
