With just two people in the house, no matter what I make, I always have leftovers. And sometimes I get sick of eating those leftovers all the time. So every once and a while, I will take my leftovers and turn them into something else. Today I took leftovers from my taco dinner last week and turned them into a lovely taco salad.
Makes one serving
Start to finish: 5 minutes
3 oz leftover taco meat
1/2 oz of shredded cheddar
5 tortilla chips
1 small tomato, diced
2 cups lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup chunky salsa
jalepeno slices (optional)
The assembly of this is pretty straight forward. Microwave the taco meat for 30 seconds.
Add the meat and cheese to the lettuce you will have chopped up into bite size pieces.
Don't forget those crunchy tortilla chips. Crumble them up into bite size pieces for added crunch.
Mmm it looks good already doesn't it?
For some added color top this salad with tomatoes. Then for extra spice add jalepenos and the salsa of your choice. Using salsa as your dressing will be just as flavorful as regular dressing with a fraction of the calories,, making this salad healthier than some.
