Catalina Taco Salad

Catalina Taco Salad- my low carb take on this classic Frito Taco Salad with Catalina Dressing.



2 lbs of ground beef or ground turkey cooked with fat drained off

Taco Seasoning-

1 tbsp. of garlic powder

1 tbsp. of onion powder

1 tbsp. of chili powder

2 tbsp. of cumin 

1 tsp of salt

1 recipe for Catalina Dressing

2 large heads of romaine lettuce washed & chopped

1/2 of a red onion chopped in small pieces

1 or 2 avocados sliced (you can add a little lime juice to keep it from turning brown)

1 cup of cheese

2 roma tomatoes chopped in chunks


1 can of pinto beans drained

1 can of black olive drained

Blue corn tortilla chips


Cook the ground beef or turkey in an Instantpotj or in a skillet.

Drain and rinse ground meat in a colander to remove extra fat.

Place in a large bowl, add the taco seasoning, and mix.

Make the Catalina Dressing recipe.

Wash, chop and dry the romaine lettuce.

Chop tomatoes, onion, avocados.

In a large bowl you can place the lettuce, meat, tomatoes, onions and cheese.

Drizzle dressing over and add avocados to the top.

Or you can make like a taco bar so each person can add the ingredients individually.
