Posted By ,January 26, 2017

When the winter time comes, nobody really thinks about salads that much. It’s all about soup and comfort food–and who could blame them? But here’s a recipe for a taco salad that is out of this world–so much so people will call it dynomite (like TNT, get it?). I know, it’s corny, lol. Just enjoy the salad, lol!

Prep Time:3 mins
Cook time:20 mins
Total Time:30 mins

2 tomatoes
1 cup sautéed onion
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese
1½ lb fresh ground turkey
1 cup sweet corn
1 cup black beans
1 small bag (7 ounces) Cool Ranch Doritos (crushed)
1/2 cup low-fat ranch dressing
1/2 cup homemade taco Seasoning:
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder, 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Sea Salt¼ cup water
2 cup spinach and romaine lettuce mix
1/2 cup pico de gallo
2 cups regular tortilla chips


In a medium skillet over low – medium heat, add 1½ lb ground turkey and 2 Tbsp taco seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until done.
Add 2 Tbsp to ¼ cup more taco seasoning, tomatoes and ¼ cup water, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Combine the cheese, onion, corn, black beens, spinach and romaine, and ground turkey in a large bowl. Add the ranch dressing and mix well. Just before serving, add all the tortilla chips, tossing to combine with other ingredients.

Top each serving with a teaspoon of salsa.
