RECIPE: Nat’s Taco Salad

Taco Salad.jpg

If you were watching our Insta stories, you know it was taco night in Nat’s house! Not only do the kids love making their own taco creations, but it’s perfect for our WW program because we can opt for a taco salad instead, which contains less meat and isn’t served with the tortilla chips or wraps that cost us points.

To make your salad super filling and delish, bulk up on ingredients that are free points (like veggies). Nat added corn tonight, which really beefs up the salad without adding more beef 😏

The value of this recipe is 5 WW SmartPoints.

INGREDIENTS (makes four servings)

  • 12 ounces ground beef

  • Olive oil

  • 1/4 cup red onions - chopped

  • 4 cups romaine lettuce - coarsely chopped

  • 2 cups salsa

  • 2 cups red, green and orange bell pepper - chopped

  • 2 cups tomato - chopped

  • 1 cup reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese - shredded

  • Avocado - chopped

  • Corn - chopped

  • Jalapeños - chopped


  1. Cook ground beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until beef is browned; stir to crumble.

  2. In a separate skillet, sauté onions in a bit of olive oil and then mix it into the cooked meat.

  3. In a large pot, steam corn in a bit of water to keep it moist.

  4. Place 1 cup lettuce in 4 separate dishes; top with 1 cup meat mixture.

  5. Sprinkle each serving with salsa, 1/2 cup peppers, 1/2 cup tomato, 1/4 cup cheese and chopped avocado.

  6. Add corn to bulk it up and add jalapeños if you like it spicy!

    ** If you’re wanting the taco shell, just add 3 points! **
