Have I ever mentioned how much I like avocados? and guacamole?
Well, if not, it’s been an oversight. I love them. And generally just can’t get enough.
So, of course, I have tried the Baja Salad at Wendy’s, and the Turkey, Bacon, and Avocado sub at Subway. And they’re both delicious.
But then I got thinking – these are not difficult things – I should try this at home! And so here it is… my knock-off version of the Baja Salad:
Start with some greens – I like a spring mix.
Add some leftover Taco Soup (see recipe below) and some shredded cheddar cheese.
I used Hidden Valley Southwest Chipotle dressing and any type of salsa will do.
Add your guacamole (see recipe below) – and there you go! (I didn’t add in any chips because, well, I’m counting those calories – but you could top it with some type of coarsely crushed chip if you want to.) Delicious!
So here are the recipes. I had made these for other meals and just used the leftovers for this salad lunch.
