Waytooeasy Taco Salad!
Posted May 21, 2010on:
Since picnic weather seems to be in the forecast, I’d thought I’d share my favorite dish to bring to picnics. Not only is it yummy… it’s gluten-free and low-cal!! It’s pretty much as easy at PB&J, and in my experience, party guests hold you in higher regard if you bring something straight from your kitchen, and not mac salad that you picked up at P Chops.
You will need:
A big mixing bowl
A 10 inch skillet
You’ll need to go and buy
1 lb of ground turkey
1 packet of taco seasoning (GF folks, check the ingredients!!)
Bag of shredded lettuce
Can of diced tomatoes (you can get an actual tomato and cut it up yourself, but I’m lazy with this)
Bag of Baked Tostitos
Bag of shredded cheddar cheese (you can leave the out or put it on the side if you’re serving anyone with milk allergies)
Brown the ground turkey. This means you put the turkey in the skillet over med-high heat and push it around till it turns brown. Follow the directions on the back of the taco seasoning. Usually this includes dumping the taco seasoning and some water into the skillet and keep heating it until it’s all mixed together and there’s no water left. FYI, this is the most complicated step.
Open the Tostitos and smush them all up until they are crumbs. Dump the crumbs in the bowl. This is the second most complicated step.
Open up the lettuce and cheese. Dump in zee bowl.
Open up the diced tomatoes. Drain in a colander, you don’t want the salad to be too watery. Into da bowl they go.
Stir it together… serve it up.
This recipe serves around four, FYI. Great with margaritas!
Enjoy… and Happy Friday!!
