Taco salad is an easy dinner idea.
Taco salad has everything we need, all on one delicious plate. Protein. Veggies. Dairy. And, chips! 😉
We love super flavorful, browned ground turkey, seasoned pinto beans, fresh chopped tomato, green onion, green leaf lettuce, cheese and sour cream in our taco salad. All layered over crispy, Tostito’s Scoops.
Add 1/2 cup of chopped onion (for every 1/2 pound of meat), when browning the turkey or ground beef. It adds an extra level of flavorful goodness. As does seasoning the raw meat with a little seasoning salt & freshly cracked black pepper, before adding the taco seasoning packet (to the browned cooked meat). You can also season the beans with taco seasoning.
Authentic mexican cheeses are really good too. Queso Quesadilla, Asadero, and Manchego. We really enjoy Sargento Artisan Blends Authentic Mexican, but have been having trouble finding it in stores lately.
Flavor. Flavor. Flavor! It’s the key to an exceptional taco salad.
