Recipe 2: Taco Salad (I have never written a recipe so please bear with me)

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add taco seasoning and garlic stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add ground turkey and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost cooked through but still slightly pink, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in tomato sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Layer lettuce, crushed tortilla chips, cooked turkey, cheese, tomatoes and avocado. Pour salsa or taco sauce over salad to your liking. Serve immediately.

Her salad above looks delicious and I will definitely be adding it to a future meal plan but I used the recipe above simply as a marinade for chicken tenders (marinated for about 4 hours) and then grilled it.

Marinade: 1/4 C Olive Oil + 1 T Balsamic Vinegar + 1 t sugar + salt & pepper

I served that over quinoa cooked per the package directions and then roasted 1 red bell pepper and 1 green bell pepper at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes with salt & pepper. That’s it….
