Getting most children to eat salad is a challenge. So when we decided to have taco salads for dinner one night I was astonished to see my daughter, Ava, devouring hers. Then I realized it had all the things she loves(cheese, black beans, taco chips) in it and I made sure to cut her lettuce in to bite sized pieces. Topping her salad with extra black beans and cheese disguised the fact that she was eating SALAD!
Lettuce of choice (we used romaine hearts)
Black beans (or any bean you like)
Ground beef 90/10 (or to make it even healthier ground turkey is a great option)
Blue Chips with flax seed (we use archer farms)
Brown meat until done. Add Seasoning. Heat beans in a small pan and add a bit of taco season. Viola! Dinner is ready! J
I love making this dinner for my familly. It is super filling and soo delicious. Everyone is able to pick and choose what goes on their salad which makes it great for everyone.
