Turkey Taco Salad Bowl
Turkey Taco Salad Bowl Recipe
Make an easy taco salad with spicy, saucy meat. To make crispy tortilla bowls, skip the deep-fryer and bake the tortillas on overturned soup bowls instead. This method will yield a pair of golden, ultra-crisp taco shells with a lot less fuss.
Sauteed aromatics and tomato sauce and a hefty dose of chili powder add a savory depth and heat to ground turkey filling. For heartiness, add beans to the salad along with cherry tomatoes and shredded romaine. Saucy, boldly flavored
taco meat, a squeeze of tart lime juice is all the dressing the salad needs.
Be sure to use ground turkey, not ground turkey breast (also labeled 99 percent fat free). If cherry tomatoes are unavailable, substitute grape
tomatoes; cut the grape tomatoes in half along the equator rather than quartering them. You will need two oven safe soup bowls for this recipe.
