Directions Step-By-Step

1
In order to keep this low point/cal. You truly must measure all the ingredients.

In a pan over medium heat. Add 2tbls of olive oil, garlic and the diced brown onion. Cook until onions are tendar. Stir frequently.
2
Once the onions have cooked down, add the raw ground turkey. Season with taco season,garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste. Cook until brown. Drain and set aside.
3
Rub the flour tortilla with 2tbls of olive oil. Ensure you cover the entire shell booth sides. Select a small oven safe bowl. Place the bowl on a cookie sheet and drape the tortilla over the bowl. Bake the tortilla at 350F for approx. 10-12mins. Note: cooking time varies so keep an eye on it. You want the tortilla to be brown and crisp.
4
Heat the refried beans in the microwave.
5
Assembly - there is no right or wrong way to assemble your taco salad. However, this is how I assemble mine.

In the center of your crip taco shell:
Add: the refried beans - spread it around as if you are making a sandwhich; next is the ground turkey, then the shredded lettuce; cover the lettuce with your salsa; next sprinkle the cheese and diced tomato; place the sour cream right on top. Place the sliced olives on top of the sour cream. Last with the green onions...there you have it.. A very yummy taco salad that you can actually eat the bowl and not feel guilty about it :)
