Taco Salad

The first time I ate "taco salad" was on Dec of 2005, I remembered the date because we were on Chicago with our friends that time, and we ate on one of the restaurants over there that serves taco. That time I don't really like it, but still I tried for pakikisama. On our way home, I don't feel good, my stomach was upset and one thing that came first on my mind was the "taco" that we ate at the restaurants so I told my hubby about it that its because of the taco and he said no and he even said "that was good how come", but I think its because of the sudden changed of the food cause havent ate that before and that time I was only 2 months in here so i was still adjusting on whatever food that I ate.
Anyway, its opposite now cause I love to eat taco salad now. Sometimes, we will make tacos' instead of buying at "taco bell" so we cam put more meat if we want to.

Well, if you love this kid of salad here's the recipe so you can make it at home


1/2 cup prepared salsa
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
2 large plum tomatoes, diced
1 (14 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
8 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

1.Combine salsa and sour cream in a large bowl.

2.Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add turkey and cook, stirring often and crumbling with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, cumin and chili powder; cook, stirring, until the tomatoes begin to break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in cilantro and 1/4 cup of the salsa mixture.

3.Add lettuce to the remaining salsa mixture in the bowl; toss to coat. To serve, divide the lettuce among 4 plates, top with the turkey mixture and sprinkle with cheese.

This is good for 4 servings
