Low Carb Taco Salad
Low carb taco Tuesday. How you ask? Omit the taco shells place the middles in a bowl and you have a fantastic taco salad without all the carbs.
I love chili seasoning and chili powder is actually a fairly healthy seasoning, with significant amounts of several beneficial nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C and minerals. Be very careful thought and read your labels as chili powder can be fairly high in sodium. Or even better yet make your own blend.
I used lean ground beef for the family but you can also use ground chicken, turkey or firm cubed tofu for a vegetarian option.
