Cool Taco SaladSubmitted by: BETTYBUFFCHICK
2 portions lean ground beef (about 1/2 lb)
1 Tbsp water
2 tsp taco seasoning mix, divided
2 tbsp fat free cream cheese, at room temp.
2 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
2 Tbsp salsa
1 cup lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, diced
1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Pita Bread
In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain off any excess fat. Add water and 1 tsp taco seasoning to the beef and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Cut each pita into 8 wedges and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes or until browned.
While the beef is cooling, combine the remaining taco seasoning, cream cheese, sour cream and salsa in a small bowl; mix well. Divide and spread this mixture evenly on 2 small plates.
Spoon a portion of the beef over the sour cream mixture, and top each with half the lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese.
Place 8 baked pita wedges on each plate, serve and enjoy!
