Have you ever wondered what to do with your leftover Taco Meat filling? Here's a great idea!
|Easy Taco Salad from leftover taco meat. It only has 5 ingredients; lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, kidney beans, Nacho cheese Doritos. Then add your favorite dressing; mine is Catalina.|
So here is my recipe:
1 pound ground turkey fried up and drained, then mix with 1 taco seasoning packet, a little water,
add in 1 small can green chili salsa or regular mild salsa. Simmer till reduced.
Put together salad made up of.....
1 small head of iceberg or romaine lettuce chopped into bite size pieces
1 can of drained kidney beans
1-2 small cut up tomatoes
3/4 to 1 cup cheddar cheese grated
1 1/2 cups Doritos Nacho Cheese variety crushed into bite size pieces
black olives (optional)
Kraft Catalina Dressing (pour over just before serving to taste, about 1/2 cup) It is just as good with the reduced calorie variety of dressing.

|cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, I ran out of olives....OOPS!|
|Taco meat.....leave this separated till right before mixing up the dressing or it wilts the lettuce.....|
|Easy ingredients for a yummy taco salad....|
|I've used both varieties....I can barely tell the difference...so go for the Low Cal!|
|Yummy and pretty healthy too! Sometimes I add olives to it for more color, sometimes a diced avocado if I have one. Yummy!|
|Perfect with a side of cornbread muffins! Yum!|
