Taco Salad

This Recipe is SO good, you will want to lick your fingers.  I am a Mexican food lover and as we all know it is not always the best clean choice for weight loss and health.  So I make my own version of a Taco salad and enjoyed every last bit of it!

Ingredients:
  • Ground Turkey
  • Taco Seasoning
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 cup corn cooked
  • 1 can black beans cooked
  • green onions sliced
  • greek yogurt
  • spinach or other greens
  • balsamic vinegar
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Red peppers chopped
Directions:
Heat a non stick skillet over medium high heat and brown the turkey and onion until no longer pink.  Drain meat and put back in the pan.  Add in 1/4 cup water and the taco seasoning mix.  Stir until covered.  In the meantime, cut up the green onions, red peppers and avocado.  Assemble lettuce on the plate and layer with corn, beans, avocado, ground turkey, a dollup of greek yogurt, then put a splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar on top for dressing!  Absolutely amazing salad!!!

There is no greater joy than enjoying your dinner minus the calories and guilt!
