1/2 pound extra lean ground beef
low-salt multi-grain tortilla chips
3 med. tomatoes
1/2 finely shredded light old cheddar cheese
1 can sliced olives
1 can refried beans (or make your own)
1/4 c. salsa
peppers – optional
Brown your beef until it’s crumbly. If you didn’t use extra lean beef, drain and rinse the beef with hot water.
Heat refried beans on med-low heat until bubbly, stirring frequently. Add salsa and combine. Return to bubbling and then remove from heat.
Get out 3 plates
crush your chips and top your salad or leave them whole and place a layer on the bottom
Divide the beans evenly onto the 3 plates
Divide the meat evenly
Divide the head of Romaine between the 3 plates
Chop 1 tomato per plate and distribute around the plate
Olives, Peppers, and Onions
Divide cheese between the 3 plates
Serves 3. Top with a bit of sour cream or salsa if you like, or a light salad dressing. I eat mine as is but hubby likes dressing
