  • Taco Salad

    We LOVE taco salad and I make it often in the summer as a light alternative to a heavy meal. Here is my version:

    by Mr Food

    1 pound ground beef
    1 pkg dry taco seasoning mix (I often use fajita)
    1 med head iceberg lettuce, chopped
    8 oz shredded Cheddar cheese
    16 oz can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
    2 lg tomatoes, diced
    4 oz sliced black olives, drained
    14 1/2 oz Ranch flavored Dorito's, crushed
    16 oz bottle Sweet and Spicy French salad dressing

    In a medium-sized skillet, brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning mix over medium-high heat, stirring to break up the meat; drain and cool.

    In an extra-large salad bowl, layer half of the lettuce, then half of the cheese, beans, ground beef, tomatoes, and olives. Repeat the layers once more, then top with the crushed tortilla chips. Before serving, add the dressing and toss well to coat.

    I have noticed everyone seems to have their own version of taco salad! mine is a family tradition started in California in the late seventies. I am not going to list quanities as they also vary!

    hamburger(s+p to taste)
    dark red kidney beans, we always heat these when HB is brown + drained,just to heat.
    crushed doritos
    we then top with shredded cheese and ranch on our plates ....although some use italian dressing and hot sauce!
