One of my favorite quick weeknight meals is a flavorful taco salad packed with spicy ground beef, beans, corn, cheese, crunchy tortillas, and all the fixings. This simple recipe comes together in a flash and will satisfy any taco cravings without the guilt. I almost always double the recipe for leftovers. Just pack the meat, beans, and corn in a separate container so the salad doesn’t get soggy. You could also wrap the filling inside the tortilla for a healthy burrito if you prefer.

Place tortillas directly on the oven racks and cook for 6-10 minutes until toasted.

Brown the beef in a skillet over medium high heat.
