It doesn't take much extra time to prepare a salad that's layered instead of tossed together in a bowl. But , oh, the compliments you'll receive from family members when you please their eyes and treat their taste buds with this scrumptious dish. Take a bow!

8 oz. ground 90% lean turkey or beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
4 cups finely shredded lettuce
2 cups finely chopped fresh tomatoes
3/4 (3 oz) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups chunky salsa ( mild, medium, or hot)
3/4 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
1 cup (3 oz) crushed Doritos Reduced Fat Tortilla Chips

In a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. In a 9x12 inch dish, layer lettuce, cooled meat mixture, tomatoes, and Cheddar cheese. In a medium bowl, combine salsa and sour cream. Evenly spread salsa mixture over top. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle tortilla chips evenly over salsa mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Divide into 6 servings.

Each serving equals:
HE: 2 1/2 Vegetable, 1 2/3 Protein, 2/3 Bread, 1/4 Slider, 10 Optional Calories
