Beef Taco Salad
1 lb lean ground beef, about 85% or 90% lean
1 envelope taco seasoning or burrito seasoning
Optional: a few dashes hot sauce to taste
1 head lettuce, shredded, about 4 cups
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cups corn chips
Taco sauce (optional)
In a heavy skillet over medium heat brown the ground beef, stirring and breaking up, until the beef is no longer pink. Drain off excess fat. Sprinkle the taco seasoning mixture over the beef and mix well. Stir in hot sauce.
In a large bowl, combine shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, tomato, olives, and green bell pepper. Toss. For each serving, place lettuce mixture on a salad plate or bowl, top with some of the seasoned ground beef and garnish the taco salad with taco chips. Alternatively, the salad may be served atop taco chips or in a taco shell “bowl.”
Serve the taco salad with taco sauce, if desired. Serves 4-6
