Expert Tips

  • Leftover ground turkey taco salad makes a great lunch the next day. Keep all the ingredients, except for the tortilla chips, stored in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Store the taco meat separately, and reheat just before assembling the salad.
  • For a little added heat, add a few chopped pickled jalapeños to the toppings.
  • Old El Paso™ Shredded Mexican Style 3 Pepper Cheese Blend can be substituted for the Old El Paso™ Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend in this turkey taco salad recipe.
