One of my favourite dishes to make for dinner is a classic taco salad. Even on a cold night this is a great choice! The spice and heat of the meat makes this dish a perfect balance of hot and cold. As you all know by now, cooking is not my forte. I am not terribly proud of this fact, but I’ve come to accept that I will never be Chef Ramsay. Thankfully, meals like this allow me to fake it.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 Pound Ground Turkey
- 1 Package Sodium Reduced Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
- 1 Can Bean Medley
- 1 Head Iceburg Lettuce (or baby spinach if you prefer)
- 1 Package Tortilla Chips
- 1 & 1/2 Cups Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Medium Chopped Tomato
- 3 Tbsp Low Fat Sour Cream (optional)
- 1/2 Cup salsa
Begin by browning the ground turkey in a large pan over medium-high heat. You will likely not need to drain your meat because turkey has much less fat than beef. Next, stir in your taco seasoning and rinsed bean medley. Continue to simmer on medium-low for approximately 10 minutes.
Chop up your lettuce and add it to a large bowl. Next, crush as many tortilla chips into the bowl as you like. Add in the cheese and tomato. Mix these ingredients together in the bowl before lightly tossing in your ground turkey and bean taco mixture. For garnish, add the sour cream and salsa on top of the salad and serve.
This is a very easy dinner to make for one or for friends and family.
