Taco Salad in a Jar

Taco Salad in a Jar Recipe

Prep time 30 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • • 1 lb. 93% Lean ground beef or 1 package of Tofu
  • • 3 tbsp. taco seasoning *see recipe* on cancerdietitian.com for a DIY version
  • • 1 head of lettuce
  • • ¼ cup onion diced
  • • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • • ½ cup of black olives sliced
  • • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • • 1 avocado
  • • 6 oz. Greek yogurt
  • • 1 cup corn
  • • 1 cup black beans
  • • 1 cup salsa

Instructions

  1. Brown beef or tofu.
  2. Add taco seasoning and mix. Set pan aside and allow it to cool.
  3. If serving as a salad to eat immediately, place all ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. If your meal prepping this, add a layer of each topping to the Mason jar, adding the meat only once cooled completely. Use 4 large jars for this recipe.
  5. I suggest this order (putting in the jar first to last, or bottom to top): salsa, Greek yogurt, avocado, meat, onion, tomatoes, olives, cheddar cheese, and lettuce.
  6. Serve with corn or whole grain tortillas, or topped with tortilla chips!
