Easy Taco Salad with Ground Turkey

I made this Easy Taco Salad in under 20 minutes and my family loved it. Lettuce, tomato, avocado and ground turkey make this meal healthy and frugal for only $1.93 per plate.

This is great for busy nights. You can buy the salsa seasoning mix or just do it yourself. I buy the mix when I want to prepare the meal quicker, but I will give you a recipe to make your own taco seasoning at home, which is the healthier option.

I made this Easy Taco Salad in under 20 minutes and my family loved it. Lettuce, tomato, avocado and ground turkey make this meal healthy and frugal for only $1.93 per plate.

To make this dinner start browning your ground turkey until it is not pink anymore. Then add the seasoning and let simmer for 3 minutes. In the meantime cut up lettuce (1/4 of the lettuce per plate), tomatoes and slice the avocado.

If you want to make your own taco seasoning mix try this recipe:

  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

The amount of the topping is up to you. Some want more veggies, some like it with more meat and chips.
