Taco Salad

From: EatingWell

A super-quick blend of reduced-fat sour cream and salsa serves double duty as salad dressing and seasoning for the meat in our updated version of Tex-Mex taco salad. Depending on the type of salsa you use, the salad will vary in heat. We keep this version light with lean turkey, but lean ground beef (about 95%-lean) would also keep the nutrition marks reasonable. Just hold the deep-fried tortilla bowl and instead serve this salad with baked tortilla chips and wedges of fresh lime.

 by 1 person
1/2 cup  prepared salsa
1/4 cup  reduced-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon  canola oil
1   medium onion, chopped
3 cloves  garlic , minced
1 pound  93%-lean ground turkey
2   large plum tomatoes, diced
1 14-ounce can  kidney beans, rinsed
2 teaspoons  ground cumin
2 teaspoons  chili powder
1/4 cup  chopped fresh cilantro
8 cups  shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup  shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1. Combine salsa and sour cream in a large bowl.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add turkey and cook, stirring often and crumbling with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, cumin and chili powder; cook, stirring, until the tomatoes begin to break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in cilantro and 1/4 cup of the salsa mixture.
3. Add lettuce to the remaining salsa mixture in the bowl; toss to coat. To serve, divide the lettuce among 4 plates, top with the turkey mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
