Easy Taco Salad

I told you earlier about trying to go back to healthier habits, but I have to make a confession. It goes beyond healthier habits, for the first time in my life, I have decided to go on a diet. I have gained weight over the last couple of years (I'd like to blame getting comfortable with that cute boyfriend of mine, Stephen). But since Christmas, I have lost 17 of those pounds. And I still have 13 to go (Please don't do the math). Because of this, I find myself cooking less lately. I'm eating smaller portions and making bigger batches for leftovers so I'm not tempted to eat out. This recipe is so easy, it's ridiculous. But it's very good.

Easy Taco Salad
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 c. frozen corn
1 c. + 2 T. salsa
2 T. sour cream

In large skillet, brown the ground turkey. Drain any extra fat. Mix in 1 cup of salsa, black beans and corn. Let all the ingredients heat through. Mix together sour cream and remaining 2 tablespoons salsa to make a dressing. Top lettuce with turkey mixture and dressing.


  1. WOW!!! That is AWSOME that you have lost that much weight in just about a month's time!

  2. Thank you so much. I have to remind myself of that on the days I fell I didn't do so good.
