Fit Foodie Friday: Turkey Taco Salad with Refried Beans

We love a good taco salad in the Baer house, and this one fits the bill! It’s healthy, filling and easy to use to meal prep lunches for the week. I usually serve it for dinner, then portion the leftovers in smaller containers for the upcoming week.

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 15 oz can refried beans
  • 4 oz can diced green chilies
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce (I LOVE El Pato)
  • 1 Small onion, diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 c chicken stock or water
  • Taco seasoning (I make my own, but the packet works too)
  • Homemade Taco Seasoning:
  • 2 T cumin
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 t garlic powder

Brown turkey in larger pan or pot until fully cooked. Drain fat. Add in onions and garlic, and cook 1-2 minutes, then add tomato sauce, seasoning, stock (or water) and diced chilies. Mix, and cook on low about 5-8 min, or until the liquid has evaporated a bit.

Heat refried beans according to directions on can. Now you can build your salad! Romaine, tomatoes, salsa, nonfat Greek yogurt, shredded cheese, avacado.... whatever you like! Add a heaping spoonful of beans and meat on top and enjoy!

This meat/bean mixture is also great for tacos, enchiladas, burritos or nachos.
