Preheat your oven to 220 C/425 F. Spread the shredded cheese over an unlined baking pan. Bake the cheese for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese has melted and turned crisp. Let the cheese cool then cut it into tortilla strips with a knife or scissors.
Taco Meat Sauce And Salad Prep
While the "tortilla strips" are baking, prepare your meat on the stove. Mix all the taco meat ingredients together in a skillet and let it simmer a few minutes until it is warm and the sauce has thickened.
Chop your lettuce and desired vegetables for your salad. When the meat and tortilla strips are done assemble the salad in a large bowl topped with salsa and sour cream. You can also serve your salad buffet style and let everyone add their own toppings to their salad.
NOTE: To reduce the carb values, simply reduce how much bell peppers/capsicums, reduced sugar tomato sauce and salsa are used.
