This was delicious...I made this and another taco salad for DH and I for our lunches today (cut them down) and this was a great hit. I used taco seasoning recipe from this site, and Best Ever Salsa#273276 for the salsa (I drained part of the liquid from the salsa) and this was very good. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2014. P.S. I topped with some avocado and a sprinkle of green onions.
This couldn't have been easier to make or more delicious to eat! I used lean ground turkey, nonfat cream cheese & lite sour cream. I put together the finished product a little differently: I toasted the flat pitas, spread the "dip" onto the bread itself & topped it with the turkey & cheese. I left out the lettuce & tomato-I served a salad on the side. Can't wait to have this for weekend lunches; it was so simple yet tasty. Thanks so much for sharing!
