Recipe Ingredients for Taco Salad

2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp soy flour
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
488 g extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup water
6 leaves romaine lettuce
120 ml green salsa
380 g jicama
100 g cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Taco Salad

  1. Make the seasoning mix: In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, soy flour, onion powder and garlic powder. Set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, add oil and cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon, about 10 minutes. Add the water and seasoning mix; stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until liquid is almost completely absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, toss lettuce with salsa. Divide among 4 large serving bowls. Top each with jicama. Divide the cheddar cheese and sprinkle over the jicama. Divide and spoon the beef mixture (about 1/2 cup per serving) over the cheese. Top each with 1 tablespoon sour cream, if using. Arrange 8 tortilla chips around each bowl, if desired.
