Gluten Free Taco Salad

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.

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

Optional toppings

Sour Cream
Sriracha sauce
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.
