Taco Salad

This is a quick and easy dinner that my husband loves. It usually makes enough to have again the next night!

Taco Salad

Shredded lettuce
Taco meat (1 lb. ground turkey cooked and seasoned with taco seasoning)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
1 recipe guacamole (see below)
flour tortillas, soft taco size
cooking spray
aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 350.
Make four aluminum foil balls, about 2 or 3 inches wide. Place on baking sheet. Place 4 tortillas in microwave for about 30 seconds to soften. Remove and spray on both sides with cooking spray. Drape tortillas over foil balls, push down on sides to form an upside down bowl. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until light brown and crisp all of the way through. Let cool. Repeat if desired, recipe will make about 8 individual salads (plus enough leftover meat to make the kids tacos if they don't want the salad! :)

Layer lettuce, meat, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. It's easiest to place in a bowl and then crunch everything together to eat. It would also be delicious to add olives, fresh tomatoes, and green onions!
