Taco Bowl with Avocado Lime Dressing Recipe

Try this healthy, filling, and delicious dinner idea!

This 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.

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. One of my husband’s comments about this taco bowl is that it is like a fiesta in his mouth. 😉

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

With a bowl meal like this, you can arrange it beautifully in sections and everyone can just scoop up what they want for their own bowls or you can just mix it all together!

Make 2017 your family’s healthiest year ever!
