Easy Taco Salad Recipe with WW Points

The best part about this taco salad is that no one even realizes the ingredients are low-calorie except me.

I hate going to parties and blowing all my weight watchers points on food that I have no idea how to even account for.

So by making my own weight watchers taco salad and knowing exactly what I put in it and how much I can have, I still stay on plan and not have to worry that I’m eating all my weeklies in one sitting.

Healthy Taco Salad Recipe Tips

  • The taco salad recipe has changed over the years. The original version calls for raw diced onions on top of the ground beef. However, everyone seemed to prefer the onions cooked into the meat.
  • Also, originally, it did not contain salsa. Fresh diced tomatoes are to be layered on top of the onions. My family prefers salsa to fresh diced tomatoes.
  • Swap out the Mexican cheese for regular cheddar or even feta cheese if you prefer.

How to Make a Weight Watchers Taco Salad Recipe

Start by browning your ground beef. Add your diced onion to the ground beef while frying. Cook until done.

What Can I do With Leftover Taco Salad Recipe

If I have any leftovers, which most of the time I do not unless I make a double batch, we like to put them on taco shells. They make a great lunch or after-school snack the next day.
