Meat filling:

Toppings:

  • 2 oz cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 oz avocado cubed
  • 1/4 cup green onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 oz tortilla chips crumbled

Salsa:

  • 4 oz white onions diced
  • 8 oz tomatoes diced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 oz jalapeno pepper diced

  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions
