Taco Salad


  • 1lb of ground beef or turkey (only use ¼ of this for the recipe, save the rest for leftovers)
  • ½ cucumber
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce
  • ¼ cup black beans, cooked and rinsed
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup of salsa
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ avocado

For the taco seasoning:

  • 4 tbsp chili powder
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 3 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper


1. Mix all of the taco seasoning ingredients together in a jar, shake and set aside.

2. Cook ground meat in a pan on medium-high heat until it is no longer pink. Stir frequently.

3. Once the meat is cooked, add 3-4 tbsp of the homemade taco seasoning and mix well. Save the rest of the seasoning in a sealed mason jar for a later date.

4. Set the meat aside and only use ¼ of the meat for your dish.

5. In a large bowl mix the romaine, cucumber, black beans, tomatoes, red pepper, salsa and meat.

6. Top with 1/3 an avocado and enjoy!
