Easy and Delicious Warm Taco Salad

If you’re looking for something quick and easy, but still nutritious, get the kids involved in making their own TACO SALADS.  The ingredients below are for the salad pictured, but you can add just about anything that looks and tastes good.  Feel free to use ground turkey, chicken or beef, or use flaked salmon or tuna from a can.  Experiment until you find a combination that suits you.  Since everyone chooses his or her ingredients, everyone is happy and plates will be empty.

WARM TACO SALAD    warm taco salad

Cooked brown rice, ground turkey cooked in taco seasoning, black beans, chopped tomatoes, chopped olives, shredded cheese, taco sauce (whatever level of heat you prefer).

1. Arrange these ingredients on a plate and microwave about 30 seconds until cheese melts.

2. Add shredded lettuce and serve.  You can also add crushed taco chips or Chinese noodles for crunch. Add sour cream if desired.  The possibilities are endless.  I cook up the ground meat ahead of time and freeze some to heat up for a last minute meal.

  1. My husband and I are already planning for our spring garden. Even though there is snow on the ground outside, we have some baby seedlings growing inside. The *babies* [onions and a variety of salad greens] are growing and thriving next to a south window. We love salads. ~Suzy

    • I love growing early lettuce in the garden! We also have an asparagus bed that sends its yummy stalks up every spring. In a few more weeks, the rhubarb should be poking through the ground…that’s a sure sign of spring for me.
