Taco Salad

Taco Salad

One of my absolutely favorite “fast food” places is Quesada Burritos & Tacos!

I ALWAYS get the burrito bowl with flame grilled chicken and tons of cilantro- so much cilantro I am confident the employees refer to me as “that cilantro girl” LOL.

Replicating this at home is SUPER EASY!!!

At the grocery store, grab the following:


  • 1 tbsp corn
  • 1 tbsp black beans (or pinto beans)
  • handful of greens
  • 1 tbsp Red Beet and Red Cabbage Sauerkraut
  • 1/2 diced red pepper
  • 3-4 ounces meat or meat replacement (for this I used ground turkey spiced with Simply Organic Taco Seasoning (found in organic aisle)
  • handful of cilantro
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 diced avocado (I use Simply Organic Guacamole Dip Mix)


  1. Cook meat (or meat alternative) in taco seasoning.
  2. While cooking, prepare the salad. Place greens on place and add corn, beans, sauerkraut, red pepper, cilantro, and juice from lime.
  3. Prepare the guacamole based on the recipe on the back of the dip mix.
  4. Once meat is done cooking, add to salad! Voila!

Chef’s Tip: You could also add some broken up tortilla chips as well if you like!
