Spicy Ground Turkey Taco Salad

Tonight I let the kids pick dinner! Big surprise.... they wanted tacos! Fortunately a good Paleo taco salad sounded pretty darn good to me, too! It was easy and satisfying. Thanks, kids! :-)

1 to 1-1/2 lbs. ground turkey
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 4 oz. can diced chilies
4 oz. sliced black olives
Top with:
fresh chopped cilantro
1 avocado
1 tomato

Mix cumin, oregano, chili powder and onion powder in a small bowl. Saute ground turkey and onions in a frying pan. As ground turkey is browning, add spices and mix well. Add in diced chilies and olives. Stir well and simmer for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let turkey mixture cool slightly.
Serve on a bed of lettuce. Top with some avocado, tomato, and salsa!
This was a fast and easy family pleaser! Hope you enjoy! :-)
