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
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.
