I am all about healthier meal options that taste amazing, but what I'm not all about are recipes that take forever to make. Because of that, I'm constantly coming up with my own concoctions, using whatever I have on-hand, that take minimal time and effort. This Tex-Mex Salad Recipe is exactly that - easy to make, time-efficient, and delicious! But my favorite part about this salad is that it's jam-packed with nutrients, making it a real power-house in your recipe book.

I used MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™ in this Tex-Mex salad and it really gave it the kick I was looking for. MorningStar Farms® products are a great meal solution for anyone who is looking to live a healthier lifestyle, busy professionals, or families; step up your Vegolutions game by adding them to your favorite recipe!

Ingredients
MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™
2 cups spinach
1 avocado
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 a pepper (in your favorite color/flavor)
cilantro
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup Great Value™ Frozen Whole Kernel Golden Corn

Directions
In a frying pan, cook your MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™- following the directions on the back of the packaging. While it's cooking, chop up your favorite vegetables. I used avocado, cherry tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro, but you could use whatever you like best. Toss the vegetables with the spinach, the Great Value™ Frozen Whole Kernel Golden Corn, and top with the cooked MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™.
In a food processor, combine the greek yogurt, salsa, 1 tbsp of cilantro, and half an avocado. Mix until the ingredients combined into a smooth, dressing-like texture, then serve with the salad. Be sure to top your salad with a couple sprigs of cilantro for presentation and taste!
