Now, here is a pretty healthy, low-calorie Taco-Pasta Salad. Use lean beef or ground turkey. My dressing is made with Greek yogurt and just a tablespoon of sour cream. This saves a ton of calories :) Enjoy!

1 lb. ground sirloin
1 package taco seasoning mix
2/3 cup water
1 (12-ounce) box tri-colored rotini pasta, cooked and drained
Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, avocado slices
Sharp cheddar, shredded
For the dressing:
1 (5-ounce) container plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon sour cream
2/3 cup salsa
Mix yogurt, sour cream and salsa together.  It’s best if it sits in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
Brown beef and drain well.  Stir in taco seasoning and water and simmer on low for about 10 minutes.  To serve:  place shredded lettuce in the bottom of a bowl, next add about ¾ cup pasta, then add the beef.  Top with as many toppings as you’d like!  Finish with cheese and the dressing.
