-With half the fat, this 8-layer taco salad makes a gorgeous party dinner or potluck side dish and is ready in just 30 minutes. Start by cooking 1-pound 93% lean ground turkey. Turkey instead of beef cuts saturated fat. Add 2 tablespoons chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Keep stirring and breaking up the meat until it's cooked through about 5 minutes.

Assemble the salad in a straight-sided bowl so you can see all the pretty layers. The turkey goes in the bottom. Followed by 1-1/2 cups crumbled unsalted tortilla chips, 1 cup salsa, one 15-ounce can rinsed pinto beans, and 5 cups sliced Romaine. Spread on the avocado mixture then 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese and 1 chopped tomato. Your beautiful 8-layer taco salad is ready to share with family and friends.
