Dinner Tonight: Taco Salad

So, by now I imagine you’re ready for a quick meal that doesn’t involve turkey or roast beef!  Here’s a vegetarian solution that’s ready quickly. I’ve listed my favorite brands for this recipe, but you can swap any of your favorites and get similar results.  You will need (all are available at Safeway)

  • Lime juice (about 1/4 lime)
  • Avocado
  • McCormick “Produce Partners” Great Guacamole spice envelope (you will only use scant 1/2 of the seasoning)
  • 1 bag of Fresh Express romaine salad greens
  • 1 can of Old El Paso vegetarian
  • Baked Tostitos yellow corn chips
  • Light sour cream
  • Old El Paso Chunky Garden Salsa, mild
  • Lucerne Light Mexican Shredded Cheese (4 cheese blend)
  • Chili Powder (optional)

Mash avocado in small bowl and squeeze in lime juice.  Add 1/2 of spice packet and put in refrigerator to blend flavors.  Meanwhile, heat refried beans over low heat.  Line plate with lettuce.  Top with beans.  Sprinkle on cheese.  Add dollops of salsa and sour cream and guacamole.  If desired, dust sour cream with chili powder.  Insert tortilla chips around salad.
