Low Fat Taco Salad

I {love} Taco Salads!!

How about you?  Do you like them? While the Taco Salads in the Mexican restaurants are a little on the ‘high-in-fat’ side, I’ve managed to make one at home that is lower in fat but equally tasty!


2 Heads of Romaine Lettuce
1 cup Fat Free Refried Beans
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 cup Wholly Salsa (or to taste)
Tortilla Chips
Sour Cream, optional

Cut and rinse your lettuce.  Split the lettuce evenly between two plates.  I place my lettuce on the plate in the shape of a donut with a whole in the middle.  Place the refried beans in the center.  Sprinkle each salad with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup salsa.  Crumble a small handfull of tortilla chips over the salad and add sour cream if you’d like.  A dash of pepper and voila!  Two yummy taco salads.

On the pictured salad, I used the Roasted Tomato Wholly Salsa.  It added just the right amount of flavor with a slight hint of spice.  I do not like spicy foods (nor does my stomach), so I had to strategically choose one that would be the perfect fit {giggle}.  This salad is delicious, low in fat and super easy!  How can you possibly beat that?  I make them often throughout the year, but they are especially great on a HOT summer day where you just don’t want to turn that oven on. Oh yeah… like now, when it’s 107 outside. Right?  Phew-eee.  Enjoy!  Stay cool!

I’ll be partying {hereherehere and here}.
