Elimination Diet: "Taco" Dinner or Perfect Meat for Rice

So how do you have a taco dinner when you can't eat tomatoes, corn, or flour?  Here's how, and it's one of my favorite meals.  :)

"Taco" Dinner

1 onion, chopped
1 lb. ground turkey or chicken
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
Beanitos black bean chips

Optional Toppings
Avocado, diced or mashed
Fresh cilantro, 10 sprigs or to taste
Green onion, sliced

Cook onion until translucent.  Add meat, and cook until beginning to brown.  Add garlic.  Cook a few minutes.  Stir in seasonings.  Heat a few more minutes to blend flavors.  Adjust seasonings to taste.

Wash and dry cilantro.  Pull off leaves and tear into pieces.

Break up chips, and place on plate.  Top with meat, onion, avocado, cilantro, and green onion.  I may skip the cilantro and onion, but I really like to have the avocado if I'm do this taco style.
In the picture below, I topped the meat with a cabbage slaw that needed to be used up.  (You just mix sliced cabbage, cilantro, green onion, olive oil, and Herbamare.)

If you skip the toppings, this makes a flavorful meat to mix with cooked rice.  Then, add veggie on the side such as peas for a complete meal.
