Taco Salad

Here's a no-cook version of the Burrito Pie from earlier this week. We call it Taco Salad although that is not really what it is called. Our friend makes it for us and it's delicious. I made it the other night, thinking we'd have lots of leftovers, but it was all gone that night except for a small amount my son and I ate for lunch the next day.

Taco Salad

1-1.5 pounds ground turkey
2 cans refried beans
Head of lettuce
1-2 tomatoes
Small onion, chopped
Container of sour cream (16-24 oz.)
Shredded cheese
Package of taco seasoning
Bag of nacho cheese chips

Cook the ground turkey and onion; stir in the refried beans and taco seasoning.

Chop up the tomatoes and lettuce and set aside. Preparation is now finished. Wasn't that easy!

We like to build our taco salads like this: Place chips on a plate. In this order add meat, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and cheese. Be careful because it gets big fast! Enjoy!

You could also add things like onion, black olive, etc. to the salad.
