Meatless Monday: HG's Rockin Taco Salad

Beren's been craving tacos lately and while I, too, am a big fan of anything Mexican, I really can't justify the calories & fat of your typical tacos.  Once again, Hungry Girl provided me with the perfect solution! This recipe includes the old Points value so I ran it through the Recipe Builder, resulting in a 7 PointsPlus® total.  Still nothing compared to the Taco Bell version of 20 PointsPlus®! ¡Ay, caramba!

HG's Rockin' Taco Salad


Taco salads have been around since the '60s. And they seem to be getting greasier and more calorie-packed as the decades pass. Not to worry -- HG is here with a version that has a mere FRACTION of the calories and fat of your typical taco salad. Here's the scoop...

Ingredients:3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 package Boca Meatless Chili (or about 2/3 cup of another low-fat veggie chili**)
1/4 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
2 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1 tbsp. chopped or sliced black olives
6 Guiltless Gourmet Tortilla Chips (any flavor -- or any other baked tortilla chips**), crushed

Prepare chili as directed on package. Place lettuce in a big bowl. Top with tomatoes, chili and cheese. Then add the olives and sour cream. Finish off with the crushed tortilla chips, and enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING

Have a Beauty-Full Day,
