  • 15 Cherry Tomatoes halved

Instructions

  • Prepare salad toppings by halving cherry tomatoes, tearing iceberg lettuce into pieces, and dicing up avocado and bell pepper.
  • Then, cut tortillas into 2 inch long strips. I like to do this with a pizza cutter.
  • Next, heat up 2 Tbsp of Mazola Corn Oil in pan over medium heat.
  • Sauté tortilla strips in pan until lightly browned and crisp.
  • Remove from pan, sprinkle with sea salt and place on paper towels.
  • Next, brown ground turkey or chicken in pan over medium high heat for 8 minutes.
  • Add 1/4 cup of taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water and stir until combined.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 more minutes and remove from heat.
  • Assemble taco salads and enjoy!
