After walking up and down the aisle at the grocery store trying to find gluten-free pizza crust or even a full gluten-free dairy-free pizza that did not have tomatoes (not on the Candida Diet), we decided to give up eating pizza for lunch during the Patriots vs Ravens play-offs game. Instead, we opted for healthy turkey tacos.

Since I’m not a huge fans of tacos (and we already had them for dinner on Tuesday night, I made a variation with a homemade spicy guacamole.


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 taco seasoning packet
  • 1/2 cup of beef or chicken broth
  • big ‘ol stack of corn tortillas
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 2 avocados
  • handful of cilantro
  • half a handful of basil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 5 tbsp of olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • paprika
  • lemon
  • lime
  • 2 cups of brown rice (I use GoldMine organic brown rice and I cook it in a clay pot and pressure cooker)

Homemade corn chips


Start cooking the brown rice (since I use the clay pot and pressure cooker, it takes me about an hour. I’ll have to save that for another time.) Meanwhile sautee the ground turkey until it gets brown. Once the turkey starts to cook, add in a bit of stock for flavoring and the taco seasoning packet. Heat up the black beans in another pot in the same water it comes in.

Guacamole Sauce:

In a food processor, combine 1 1/2 avocados with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, lemon, cilantro and basil.


Slice the tortillas in to bite size chips. Spray with olive oil and season with cayenne pepper and paprika. Bake about 15 min, turning until they are crispy and browned. Take them out and immediately season with salt and lime. Serve fresh!
