Taco Salads are notoriously high in calories and fat - not what you'd expect from a "healthy salad". Touchdown Taco Salad scores healthy points by lowering the high-cal ingredients.
By replacing higher-fat ground beef with extra lean, regular cheese with fat-free cheese, deep-fried tortilla shell bowl with baked tortilla chips, and by omitting the sour cream, you can enjoy this salad guilt-free!
Brown the beef in large non-stick skillet; remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup shredded cheese and 1/4 cup salsa; mix until blended. Spoon onto serving platter.
In a large bowl, toss together salad greens, tomatoes, black beans, remaining cheese, and salsa. Spoon salad over meat mixture, top with tortilla chips and serve.
