  1. Heat oven to 350°F.

Add bell pepper and continue sautéing until softened, another 2 minutes. Add ground turkey, breaking up while cooking until fully cooked, about 4 minutes. Add salt, chili powder, pepper and garlic powder and mix, cooking until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in diced tomatoes and green chili until evenly mixed. Remove from heat and pat down to an even layer in the skillet.
  3. In a medium bowl, use a fork to combine almond flour, cornmeal, and baking powder. Mix in egg and buttermilk until combined.

Bake for 25 minutes, until topping is beginning to brown.
  4. Sprinkle cheese over the skillet and place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  5. Top skillet with cilantro and serve with avocado and fresh jalapeno slices.
