Taco Salad

Made with turkey and DIY taco seasoning, this fits into the L4L weight loss phase.  And on maintenance, you could dress it up a bit and still keep it lean.

  • 1 20-oz pkg lean ground turkey
  • 3 TBSP Taco Seasoning Mix (found here)
  • salad greens/cabbage mixed to taste
  • red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • green onion, sliced thin
  • grape tomatoes cut in half
  • lowfat cheddar or jack (I used a half of a colby jack string cheese, weight watchers blend for one added carb and 50 added calories)

Depending on whether you’re on the weight loss phase or the maintenance phase, you’ll want to measure your ingredients accordingly.

Brown turkey, add 3 rounded TBSP taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water.  Cook and stir till water is evaporated.  Put salad greens and veggies on a plate, add dressing of choice (try making a simple DIY ranch with nonfat milk or plain nonfat yogurt, or nonfat cottage cheese), top with meat and cheese.
