Taco salad (without the taco chips) is a great phase 1 meal. Yes, the chips are really what makes it so yummy, but its still good without. On occasions when I'm not being so strict, however, you bet they are thrown back in!
Here is one version of a simple taco salad recipe. I deleted the taco chips part. The recipe and picture came from allrecipes.com.
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 cup salsa
1 (15.25 ounce) can kidney beans
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Optional garnish: sour cream, chopped tomato, and additional salsa
