5. Meanwhile, cook the brown rice according to package instructions (I like to use Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice for convenience – it heats up in less than 10 minutes).

6. Serve rice in bowls. Add turkey on top of rice. Top with cilantro and avocado. Sprinkle some cheese on top and mix in the juice of 1 -2 lime wedges for added flavor. Serve immediately.
