I love Taco Salad… it is one of my go to meals for my family — because it is quite quick to whip up and very simple as well.
Gluten Free Taco Salad
I made my own tortilla strips for this salad because I didn’t have any Tortilla Chips on hand. So I sliced up about 5 corn tortillas and then fried them up to a crisp.
2 ripe tomatoes, diced
1/2 pound sharp Cheddar, shredded
1 large onion, diced
1 head green leaf lettuce, washed, drained and shredded
1 pound lean ground turkey or beef, browned, crumbled and drained
Can Black Beans, drained
2 TBSP Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning
Gluten Free Tortilla Strips
Brown meat, beans and onions together with the Taco Seasoning until thoroughly cooked. Then combine everything together in a large salad bowl. Just before serving, add the taco chips, tossing to combine with other ingredients. Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream drizzled with Sriracha sauce to taste and some tortilla strips.
