Taco Salad - Chicken

Submitted by: CARPENSM

Introduction

A yummy much healthier twist on a not so healthy favourite. I also like to bake a tortilla and break it into the salad. It is not included in this recipe as depending on what type you buy they all have different calories. A yummy much healthier twist on a not so healthy favourite.

Directions

Brown ground chicken or chopped chicken breasts with all the spices listed, onion and a garlic clove. You can also use taco seasoning but I like to do it from scratch.

Chop romaine lettuce to desired consistency.

Add sour cream and salsa to the top - about 1 tb of sour cream and 2 tb salsa. You can also add guacamole if you have it but its not included in the calories here.

Pour 1/4 of the chicken mix over the salad mix and enjoy.

I also brown a tortilla in the oven at 425 for 8 minutes and break over the salad to add some crunch. I use the super small ones so it only adds an extra 100 calories.
