Chopped Taco Salad




I love a good taco salad and this is one of my favorites! I tend to make more salads for dinner in the warmer months but since we have been having such nice weather around here lately, I decided why not! Easy, healthy, and delicious!

Ingredients
1 pound lean ground beef or turkey (I used 93/7)
1 package taco seasoning
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 cup fat free black beans, rinsed
1.25 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/3 cup sliced pickled jalapenos

Cook ground beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning and simmer.

Meanwhile add lettuce to a large bowl and add in the cheese, tomatoes, olives, black beans, and green onion and toss well.

Next add the beef/ground turkey to the bowl along with the tortilla chips and toss. Drizzle Catalina dressing over the salad.  Serve with sour cream and jalapenos if desired. Enjoy!
