Wok's For Dinner: Taco Salad

This meal was sooo good. I love a good salad, and had been in the mood for a taco salad for several weeks. I had a coupon for Texas Toast Tortilla Strips (next to the croutons at the grocery store) and finally found a store that sells them. I knew that the tortilla strips would make a perfect topping to a taco salad, and I was finally able to use them tonight. Yummy!

Taco Salad

1 lb ground turkey
1 med. green bell pepper, diced
1 med. red bell pepper, diced
1/2 med. onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, diced (seeds removed, of course, unless you like the heat!)
1 pkg taco seasoning
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 can pinto beans, drained
shredded or torn lettuce leaves (I just used a bag of garden salad)
Texas Toast Chily Lime Tortilla Strips
shredded cheese
cherry tomatoes, diced
salad dressing (I used sweet vidalia onion; hubs used ranch)
sour cream

Brown ground turkey, bell peppers, onion & jalapeno in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir occasionally until meat is no longer pink. Reduce heat, then stir in taco seasoning and chicken broth. Stir in pinto beans. Let simmer for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place lettuce on plate. Top with meat mixture, tortilla strips, cheese, tomatoes, some salad dressing, and a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!


  1. I love that you used ground turkey. It's a nice change from beef in a taco salad.

  2. wow .. yum yum .. looks so delicious
