Skinny Taco Salad


This was SO yummy, ya'll. I made an entire recipe for myself and ate it for days. I just kept the beef and corn mixture in separate containers already measured out. It was filling and tasted just like a taco!

I should also mention how easy this was to throw together. It was great to make on a night when I had no one to cook for.

-Ingredients-

1 lb extra-lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
low sodium taco seasoning
1 cup frozen corn kernals, thawed
1 cup salsa, divided
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheese- 2% (any kind you'd like. I used colby/jack)
4 cups chopped lettuce
green onions, chopped

-Directions-

1. Brown and drain the beef. Add the taco seasoning and cook according to package.
2. Mix in 1/2 cup salsa and the corn. Cook until heated through.
3. For each salad use 1 cup lettuce, 1/2 cup beef mixture and top with 2 tbsp each of salsa, sour cream and cheese.
4. Top with chopped green onions and enjoy!
(For lunch I would halve this recipe and use only 1/4 cup of the meat mixture)
