  • Salsa pick your strength, I used mild
  • Guacamole optional
  • Sour Cream you can sub this in for the guac or add both

  • Brown turkey meat, add beans when done. Add in 1/2 packet taco seasoning and 1/2 a cup of water. Let it simmer for 5 minutes. Take off heat, drain any remaining liquid.
  • Shred lettuce, slice cucumbers and add grape tomatoes in one bowl.
  • Set out serving bowls.
  • In each bowl, place salad, top with turkey and bean mixture. Then add cheese (soy or regular), add tortilla chips/shreds. Then top with either or all of the following: salsa, gucamole, and sour cream.
  • This can be made gluten free, turkey meat should be (just check your package to confirm). The tortillas are corn.
