Skinny taco salad

Healthy, delicious dinner in like 15 min--yes please!

*1 1/4 lb 99% lean ground turkey
*1 packet taco seasoning
*1 can fat free chili lime refried beans (or reduced sodium black beans if you prefer)
*1 red pepper, sliced
*reduced fat mexi cheese
*fat free sour cream

(makes approx 5 servings and great as leftovers too!)

Cook turkey until brown (well lets be honest more of an off white-ish with the really lean stuff), add taco seasoning along with however much water it calls for (I also sometimes add my own stuff-garlic powder, red and black pepper, cumin, chili powder, cilantro and sometimes a dash of cinnamon). While the turkey is cooking, heat the beans on medium in a sauce pan. Fill your bowl with however much lettuce, cilantro and red pepper you want, add 4 oz ground turkey, 1/4 cup beans, 2 tbs each of salsa, cheese and sour cream. Tada! Delicious. You can add avacado or guac is you want, but it adds like 100 cal a serving so I just go without.

250 calories, 5 g fat and almost 40 g of protein!

If you're veggie, I suggest doing black and fat free refried beans and even if you end up using a whole cup of beans, you're still only looking at 280 calories. Enjoy!
