Taco Salad

18 04 2011

This recipe is for my sister Jamie. Every time she comes to visit and we are trying to decide what to make for dinner the first thing she wants is Taco Salad and then my husbands breakfast sandwiches. This Taco Salad recipe is simple to make but don’t be fooled by the Salad part. It has thousand island dressing and Doritos on it so it wouldn’t rank up there with the healthy salads but I don’t mind because it is so tasty.

Taco Salad

~ 1 lb. of ground beef

~ 1 head of lettuce or bag of lettuce

~ 1-2 tomatoes

~ 1 can of Kidney beans

~ Cheddar cheese

~ Avocado (optional)

~ Doritos

~ Thousand Island dressing

1. Brown up the ground beef. Once the ground beef is browned drain off the fat and set it aside to cool.

2. Chop up the lettuce and tomatoes and add to a large bowl. Drain the Kidney beans and add them to the lettuce and tomatoes. Add a couple of handfuls of cheddar cheese or as much as you like.

3. Add in browned ground beef and toss with Thousand Island dressing, enough to coat. Top with crunched up Doritos.

It is pretty simple. He just uses hamburger buns, eggs, and a slice of cheese. While you are either scrambaling or frying up your egg brown the ham in a skillet. Once the egg is done place a piece of cheese on top so it melts. Then stack it all together on the hamburger bun and you have a breakfast sandwich.
