1/2 cup prepared salsa
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 teaspoon canola oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces lean ground beef or turkey
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 cup canned kidney beans
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Tex Mex Salad

  1. Combine salsa and sour cream in a large bowl.
