Flight Attendant Taco Salad

flight att. taco salad cropped

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 package low sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 can no-salt added corn
  • 1 can red kidney beans- drained and rinsed
  • 4.5 cups coleslaw mix (cabbage w/ shredded carrots)
  • 1/2 c. TJ lite shredded three cheese blend
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup fat free catalina dressing

Brown the turkey and add the seasoning. Mix all ingredients together in a large pot.

1.5 cups = 243.4 calories

This taco salad is good to pack for lunch because it is great cold. I also like to make this for pot lucks because I can make a large pot ahead of time and just add the dressing at the last minute.

It is easy to change the recipe to add things you like or to take away ingredients. Green onions, olives, cilantro are all great to add. I also like this salad dry with no dressing or you can also add TJ multigrain Tortilla chips (comes in a blue bag) crushed on top (28g=130 calories).
