Turkey Taco Salad

I found this one on Better Homes and Gardens years ago, modified it a tiny bit and it's become one of my regular standbys. In fact, if you ever need to drop-off dinner to someone, this is a great recipe (pack it up and leave the assembly to the recipient).


1 lb. ground turkey
1 15-oz. can pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz. can corn
1 cup salsa
4-6 cups romaine lettuce, torn
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 small tomatoes, chopped
1 bag of tortilla chips (I prefer Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla chips)

1. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook ground turkey on medium-high heat until no longer pink. Drain off any fat. Stir in beans, corn, salsa and 1/4 cup of water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer, covered for 2-3 minutes.

2. Line four salad bowls with lettuce. Top with turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese, tomatoes and chips. Serve immediately.

I enjoy reading your blog, and have tried a few of your recipes. Thanks for sharing!

How much water do you add to the turkey taco salad recipe?

You are welcome anytime Meridee.

Sorry for the oversight. Add 1/4 cup of water. I've corrected the recipe above.
