Lori's Easy and No-Fuss-Low-PointsPlus®-Taco-Salad
4 ounces of lean ground turkey - 5 PointsPlus®
1/2 cup of fat free refried beans - 2 PointsPlus®
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil - 1 PointsPlus®
2 teaspoons of a taco seasoning - 0 PointsPlus®
1/2-3/4 cup of fat free salsa (mild, medium or hot if you're spicy) - 0 PointsPlus®
1/4 cup of fat free sour cream (optional) - 1 PointsPlus®
greens - I used a lot of spinach and lettuce - 0 PointsPlus®
red onion (used as a garnish/topping, it's not necessary and use what you like) - 0 PointsPlus®
matchstick carrots (as much as you would like to add) - 0 PointsPlus®
First, you'll get out your ground turkey. I slice and portion mine when it's mostly frozen for less mess and it's great to just 'grab and go'. So, here I have my pre-measured 4 ounces of lean, ground turkey.
While that is browning (and it doesn't take too long!) this is when I chop up my greens. I used lettuce and spinach. (some green onions would be nice in here, just thought of that!)
By the time you're done chopping and have added your matchstick carrots (best thing ever), your meat and salsa combo should be ready for the refried beans. Keep stirring together until nice and heated through, then remove from heat.
Next you'll dump the cooked meat/salsa/refried bean combination onto your leafy, green salad. Top with 1/4 cup of fat free sour cream, maybe a little salsa or zero point taco sauce and stir!
