𝐻𝑒𝑎𝑙𝑡ℎ𝑦 𝑇𝑎𝑐𝑜 𝑆𝑎𝑙𝑎𝑑 2 fajita-size flour tortillas — swap corn tortillas to make gluten free 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil — divided 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt — divided 1/2 teaspoon black pepper — divided 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 head romaine lettuce — roughly chopped 1 can reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained — (15 ounces) 1 can Mexican-style corn, drained — (11 ounces) 2 cups cherry tomatoes — halved 1 medium ripe avocado — peeled, pitted, and diced 1 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
FOR THE SALSA YOGURT DRESSING: 1/4 cup prepared salsa 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1. Place a rack in the center of your oven, & preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Stack the tortillas & cut them in half, then slice each half into 1/2-inch strips. Scatter the strips in the middle of the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil, then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat, then spread them into a single layer. Bake until golden brown & crisp, about 8 minutes, turning halfway through. Set aside to cool.
2. Meanwhile, in a large, nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium high. Add the turkey, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Break up the meat and stir with a spoon until it is cooked through, about 5 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together the salsa & Greek yogurt to make the dressing.
3. Place the romaine in a large serving bowl. Top with 1/4 cup of the salsa-yogurt mixture, the turkey, black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, cheese, & green onions. Toss lightly to combine, then sprinkle the tortilla strips over the top. Serve immediately with remaining salsa-yogurt dressing as desired.#saladsunday #sundaysalads #healthyeating #healthandwellness #healthychoices #chronicpain #chronicpelvicpain #chronicpainlife #chronicpainstrong
