Taco Salad

When they're on sale, we like the Fiesta Salad mix (you know, the bag has the salad, dressing, cheese and tortilla bits all in it) so I decided to try to imitate the dressing and I think this worked really well! I think that people know what salad proportions they like, so I'll leave that to you.

Taco Salad
Prep time: 20 min

Lettuce (iceberg is what the bag kind has, but anything works)
Cheese (I prefer cheddar or monterrey jack)
Lean ground meat
Onion, chopped
Flour tortilla (1 per person)
Chili powder
(or your favorite spice blend)

Brown meat with chopped onion, minced garlic and spices. Assemble salad while meat cools a little. Lettuce, sliced tomato, grated cheese. Spray both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray and toast in a 400 degree oven or toaster oven until crunchy, about 3 minutes. Top salad with meat, broken tortilla pieces and dressing (below).

Taco Salad dressing
Directions are per person - depending on the salsa, will almost always be fat-free.

Plain nonfat yogurt

Mix 1/4 cup yogurt with 1/4 cup salsa. Pour on salad!
