Three-Step Taco Salad RecipeIngredients

  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1 (1.25-ounce package) taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2/3 cup bottled salsa
  • 8 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 cups (4 ounces) bite-sized baked tortilla chips
  • 2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney or black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe black olives (unless like me, you hate olives)


  1. Cook the beef in large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Combine sour cream and salsa in a small bowl.
  3. Combine the beef mixture, iceberg lettuce, tortilla chips, tomatoes, 1/2 cup cheese, and beans in a large bowl. Drizzle the sour cream mixture over the salad, and toss gently. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese and black olives. Serve immediately.
