Mom’s Taco Salad

February 19, 2012

My mom had a lot of staple dinner’s growing up, and this is one of my favorites, but modified just a bit.

I like to combine lean ground beef and lean ground turkey. I dice one onion and cook it with my beef and turkey. If you don’t have one of these handy little tools to chop up your ground meat, I highly recommend it! Mine is Pampered Chef and it was $10. It really chops the meat up fine and that’s how I really like my taco meat! Makes me think Taco Bell!


My mom would always add a can of kidney beans, but I love black beans,so that’s what I add.

A few other changes I have made…….Reduced Fat Cheddar, Fat Free Catalina (the dressing is what makes this Mom’s!), nonfat Greek plain yogurt, and I really don’t miss the nacho Cheese Doritos ( ok, sometimes I do, but this is so full of favors, I can go without).

Add your taco meat and beans to a big bowl of lettuce and top it off with some bell peppers, shredded cheddar, Fat Free Catalina dressing and spoonful of nonfat Greek yogurt in place of sour cream!


My plate is 10 PPV, but make sure you measure it all out for your own serving!
