Taco Salad

There are not many things I like more than having a whole meal in one bowl.  There is something about having a bunch of yummy food hugging in a bowl that makes it taste so good.... and I guess if it's is spicy it's even better.

This taco salad is super easy and fast!

Heat a large heavy bottom pan and saute:
red bell peppers

1 lb. ground turkey until browned

Taco Seasoning and 2 Tbsp tomato paste

In the meantime shred some lettuce, open a bag of shredded mozzarella cheese, some guacamole and sour cream.  If you like salsa get that out too.  You could also eat some tortilla chips with this if you like the crunch, but I am cutting calories so I just added extra lettuce.

I like to put the hot stuff on the bottom with the cheese so it will melt first:

Then I layer all the cold ingredients.  In this case lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, and homemade Salsa Verde:

Then I stir it up and enjoy all the flavors together!

With this dinner I had a nice red wine called Equation.  We bought it in Sheperdstown WV in a nice little store called Grapes and Grains.  It is a local wine and was pretty tasty.

I wish you enough!
