Taco Salad with Quest Chips

Here is a yummy easy dinner that is perfect for a week day meal or a busy weekend! Taco Salad made with taco seasoned lean ground beef placed on a bed of lettuce and chopped tomatoes. Then topped with Quest protein chips! I drizzled Bolthouse Cilantro Avocado dressing on top of the salad which only counts as 2 Condiments for 2 tbsp! Using the salad dressing as Condiments, allows you to use an additional Healthy Fat such as sliced avocado or sour cream. Yum! Check out some other Bolthouse dressings Here that could also be used as Condiments or Healthy Fats.

You can use any flavor of Quest protein chips, but I used Loaded Taco flavor! I grabbed them from Amazon! It is so good and a personal favorite of mine! These protein chips are approved for the 5 and 1 plan, but it is not recommended to have 2 bags as a full Lean. I like using them as an occasional treat and I love how they add a nice crunch to the taco salad! Yum!

Taco Salad with Quest Chips

4 ounces 95 to 97% uncooked lean ground beef ~ 3 ounces cooked (1/2 Leaner)

2 tbsp Bolthouse Cilantro Avocado Dressing * (2 Condiments)
1.5 ounces avocado, sliced or 2 tbsp sour cream (1 Healthy Fat)

Place ground beef in a medium sized skillet and cook until brown. Drain meat and return to skillet. Stir in  taco seasoning and heat for about 2 more minutes. Set aside and let cool.

Top salad with Quest protein chips and drizzle dressing. Finish off with sliced avocado or sour cream.

Makes 1 Serving
Each serving provides
1 Leaner, 3 Greens, 3 Condiments, and 1 Healthy Fat

* If you decide to use a different salad dressing as your Healthy Fat instead of Condiments, do not use sliced avocado. You can use 1 tbsp of sour cream as 1 Condiment or 2 tbsp plain non-fat or low fat Greek yogurt as 1 Condiment or 2 tbsp salsa as 2 Condiments.
