  • 2/3
    cup water
  • 1
    tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2
    teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8
    teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 12
    cups torn romaine or iceberg lettuce
  • 1
    can (15 oz) Progresso™ pinto beans, drained, rinsed

  • 3
    oz tortilla chips

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in water, chili powder, cumin and ground red pepper; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook about 5 minutes or until most of liquid has evaporated.
  • 2
    Divide lettuce among 6 salad plates; top each with meat mixture and remaining ingredients except chips. Arrange chips around salad. Serve immediately.

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • In a hurry? Just toss all of the ingredients except chips in a large bowl and serve family-style with chips.
  • Avocado slices make a perfect garnish for this zesty salad.
  • You can make your own baked tortilla chips: Cut corn or flour tortillas into wedges or strips. Brush lightly with oil and place on an ungreased cookie sheet; bake at 375°F for 8 to 12 minutes or until crispy.
