How to Make Tex-Mex Salad: My Favorite Healthy Lunch
- I usually make this to take to work, so I put the lettuce in a to go container with the beans, chicken, cilantro, green onion, and cheese (in that order, lettuce on the bottom and cheese on top)
- In a small container I mix the ranch and taco seasoning. Sometimes I make a big bottle of this, since my daughter loves it. I use a yogurt ranch from the produce section on my grocery store, which is much lower in calories and fat compared to regular ranch.
- When it's lunch time, I put some of the dressing on my salad. I usually don't use it all.
- Sometimes I add uncooked, chopped tomatoes, sweet peppers, or leftover cooked corn to this salad. I also like to eat it with tortilla chips and guacamole on the side. Any way it is great!
