The Spaniard Salad

There seemed to be a theme of mexican foods going so I thought I would continue it with a salad. Easy and very low calories, only 319. This is another recipe you can adjust the ingredients to make for 2 or for a large party.

3 Corn Tortillas
1 pd chicken (or you may use ground beef)
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
2 tomatoes, diced.
6 cups shredded lettuce
2 green onions sliced
1 can black olives, drained
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup fat free thousand island dressing

Optional: If you want to add some spice, you can add hot chilies of your choice.

Oven set to 350.
Cut the tortillas into strips and place on a cookie sheet. I would recommended using butter or cooking spray before placing them on the sheet as they will stick as the brown and will break easy. Cook strips until lightly brown. You may have to shift them on the sheet to get all sides.

Cook chicken and add taco seasoning mix according to the packet. Combined separately lettuce, tomatoes, green onion, olives and kidney beans. Add chicken, tortilla strips and thousand island. Toss altogether and its ready to serve.
