For a very long time I ate poorly. Not because I don't know how to cook but because I failed to plan my meals and would be so hungry that I'd just run to the frig and do a quick grab and go. Whatever was on hand I'd stuff in my mouth without thinking. The idea of meal planning and cooking just went out the window, especially when most of the meals would only be eaten by me (living in a household with picky eaters is rough).
Now, I realize that meal planning does not have to be difficult and most of my recipes are ready in 30 minutes or less. Today I share my favorite taco salad recipe, it is not short on flavor and it can prepared in about 5 minutes. I love this salad and I hope that you do too. It is great for lunch or dinner, especially when you don't want to cook.
2 cups of chopped romaine lettuce
1 oz of tortilla chips ( I swear by guiltless gourmet and actually only use 1/2 ounce about 9 chips)
4 tablespoons of salsa
1/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons fat free sour cream
1 Morningstar Grillers Prime patty
Place romaine lettuce on plate. Heat griller according to package directions. Cut up into pieces. Crumble tortilla chips on top of lettuce. Top with griller, add sour cream and salsa, sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Serve.
Makes 1 serving.
