Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
  • 2/3 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium tomatoes, chopped (about one cup)
  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

Cooking:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Stir in salsa; cook 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; keep warm.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160?°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  2. Line 4 plates with salad greens. Divide beef mixture among 4 plates. Top beef with cheese, tomato, pepper and onion. Garnish with olives and dressing, as desired.

    Cook's Tip: Optional Toppings: sliced ripe olives, prepared ranch or French dressing
