Paleo taco salad

I need to write this dinner down because it is tasting so good!

Homemade Taco seasoning
-black pepper
-salt
-oregano
-cayenne
-chilli powder
-cumin
-ground coriander

Mix all the spices together in a small bowl

Taco Filling
-olive oil
-ground turkey
-onion, diced
-green pepper, diced
-minced garlic

In a large skillet, heat olive oil.  Add the onion, garlic, and green pepper and stir.  Let the veggies soften a bit and then add the ground turkey.  Toss the seasoning on top of the ground turkey.  Heat until the turkey is cooked through.

Salad Toppings
tomato, diced
mixed greens
spicy guacamole- I buy this as a two pack at Giant.  It really is spicy with jalapenos in it
plantain chips (mine were the coins but I have strips too)

In a bowl add the plantain chips, then the mixed salad greens, top with diced tomato, add ground turkey mixture, and squeeze on some spicy guacamole.

It tasted like heaven.  I needed that crunch of something like a taco shell and the plantain chips saved the day.
