Loaded with lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, and avocado, this Chicken Taco Salad makes Mexican a healthy option.
8 6-inch flour tortillas
2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded
1 1-1/4 oz. pkg. taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 15-1/2 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup green onion, sliced
1 15-1/4 oz. can corn, drained
1 2-1/4 oz. can sliced black olives, drained
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and cubed
Garnish: sour cream, salsa
Microwave tortillas on high setting for one minute, or until softened. Press each tortilla into an ungreased jumbo muffin cup to form a bowl shape. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes; cool. Combine chicken, taco seasoning and water in a skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until blended, about 5 minutes. Divide lettuce among tortilla bowls. Top with chicken and other ingredients, garnishing with a dollop of sour cream and salsa. Makes 8 servings.
