Tasty Taco Bowl Recipe

This healthy taco bowl recipe is awesome! My husband even said this meal is probably in his top 5 favorite meals now! Whaa?! That’s a big deal. I have made a lot of different recipes over the years.

The healthy aspect is not a selling point for him either (or the other people I served it to) – they are all about taste and they all loved it! In fact, they have requested that I make it again when we get together in a few weeks. One of my husband’s comments about this taco bowl is that it is like a fiesta in his mouth. 😉

Ingredients

There are quite a lot of ingredients in this recipe (find the full list below), but they all work really well together! I’m usually not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, but they are really wonderful in this dish! I think the avocado and the avocado lime dressing are my favorite parts though.

If you wanted to, you could definitely modify this recipe to include some of your favorite taco bowl ingredients. Let us know if you do and how it turns out! We’re always looking for new variations to try.

Taco Bowl Dressing

I totally forgot to add the cilantro to the taco bowl dressing, but it still ended up being really good. This dressing would be a tasty, healthy option for any Mexican style salad!
