Holla Senorita! Β 

I love Mexican food!! The spices, the chips, the salad and the GUACAMOLE (of course). Here’s a quick recipe for a Mexican salad.

1/2 iceberg lettuce head

1/2 red bell pepper

1/2 yellow pepper

1/2 orange pepper

1 medium tomato

1 small onion

1/2 corn

1/2 pinto beans

1 avocado

1 cup shredded cheese

1 cup seasoned potato chips

1 lbs lean ground turkey

3 cloves of garlic

1 tbs of ginger

1 pack of taco/Mexican seasoning

Instructions:

1. Dice garlic and ginger

2. Warm up a wok, add 1/3 cups of water, and add garlic and ginger. (2 tbs of oil can be used instead of water.)

3. Cook for 1 minute, add tbs of water if it’s sticking to the bottom.

4. Add ground turkey to the wok and cook over high heat. Continuously break into bite-size chunks.

5. Once the ground chicken is cooked, add 1 cup of water, and Mexican seasoning. Mix, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until water evaporates with some gravy.

6. While the ground turkey is simmering; cut lettuce, slice bell peppers, slice onions, dice tomatos, add corn, and beans. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. (Remember to check your ground turkey in the middle. Please do not overcook or let the turkey get dry. It should have some sauce in it. 7. In a serving platter, add salad, top with cooked ground turkey, sprinkle cheese, a few pieces of diced avocado, and some chips.

8. Add Catalina sauce, and serve.

I added a little bit of sour cream, and quickly grilled wraps with spicy mayo spread. I hope you enjoyed this recipe!! Quick, easy and healthy!!

Give it a try, and let me know how you like it!
