Spicy Chopped Taco Salad

It sure is hard to get back in the swing of things after being out of town. I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend. We spent the long weekend camping and as much as I love hamburgers and hot dogs I am definitely ready for something other than those! I tend to make a lot of salads when the warmer weather hits and this Spicy Chopped Taco Salad is a favorite of ours.

Spicy Chopped Taco Salad
Serves 6
Cal 225, Carbs 10.7g, Fat 10.6g, Fiber 1.8g, Protein 18.2

1 pound lean ground beef or turkey (I used 93/7 lean turkey)
1 package taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. sriracha (you can use more or less depending on your spice level)
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
1.25 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese
1/2 cup chunky salsa
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 -3 cups corn or tortilla chips
1/4 cup light catalina dressing 
sliced jalapenos and sour cream, for serving, optional

Cook ground beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning, water, and sriracha. Let simmer.

Meanwhile add lettuce to a large bowl and add in the cheese, tomatoes, salsa, and green onion and toss well.

Next add the beef/ground turkey to the bowl along with the tortilla chips and toss. Drizzle Catalina dressing over the salad.  Serve with sour cream and jalapenos if desired. Enjoy!
