This is my adaptation of a recipe I found when I was searching for something low-fat with high protein and I have substituted ingredients to make it more healthy. I like to have it over shredded iceberg lettuce (for me) and with or over cornbread for my family.

    I like to serve my portion over shredded iceberg lettuce, with green & red onion, low-fat Mexican cheese blend, and no- or low-fat sour cream. It is the best things from a taco salad and more healthy. My family likes to have it over cornbread in their bowl, or with cornbread on the side. Top with the fresh cilantro, and other toppings of choice.
