Taco Salad

This dinner hardly needs a recipe, but I'll add it as more of a reminder of what you can pull together quickly to make a dish your whole family will love.  I'll also throw in a few ideas to make it even healthier.

Usually I start with chips or crisped up tortillas (if you crisp your own tortillas, it will be even healthier!).  Then you can add a whole variety of toppings.  Some of these are pretty standard and some might peak your interest:
  • lettuce, spinach, or cabbage
  • grated cheddar or pepperjack cheese
  • ground beef, ground turkey, pulled pork, or cubed/pulled chicken, fish for the meat
  • chopped: tomatoes, avocado, bell peppers, 
  • sliced: olives, green onions, jalapenos
  • beans: my favorite are black also pinto (drained and washed)
  • corn: my favorite is cut off the cob after being cooked/grilled
  • dressing: fresh salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, plain non-fat yogurt, cilantro (or try mixing salsa with sour cream/yogurt together)
