When it comes to cooking, I love to keep things simple by using real, whole foods that help cut down on meal prepping. That’s exactly why this Taco Salad Bowl recipe is one of my favorites. I love making extra portions of it, so I can enjoy the smorgasbord of flavors all week long. This recipe is a great option for those who love to meal prep since the ingredients that are used can easily be stored in the fridge – and hey, if you get bored of Taco Bowls, you can always use them in other staple dishes!
These Taco Bowls would be a hit at any potluck or party, as you can easily arrange a taco bowl bar for guests to create their own culinary masterpiece.
The best part about this Taco Salad Bowl recipe is that the final product can be consumed in a variety of ways. I enjoy having it in a bowl, but the contents are also perfect for stuffing into a wrap or adding on top of chips for a healthier twist on overloaded nachos. Grated cheese, guacamole and pico de gallo can also be used to enhance the flavor. The combination of cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper really bring out the taco flavoring and adds a kick of heat to every bite. The cashew and lime dressing cools down the spices and makes room for a flavorful harmony.
There’s also a very special ingredient present in this Taco Bowl recipe: collagen powder. I used Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides because it’s super versatile seeing as the collagen powder is odorless, flavorless and easily soluble in hot and cold liquids and foods. And not only that but the Collagen Peptides also help to promote healthy hair, skin, nails and joints**. Our Chicken Bone Broth Collagen can also be added if you're looking for an added flavor boost.
