Taco Salad

contributed by Kelley Hutchinson

apprx 25 min start to finish

1 lb ground beef

1 regular size jar chunky salsa (I use mild ’cause I’m a wuss)

1 can (about 16oz) kidney beans or chili beans (leave out if you don’t like beans)

1 head lettuce, chopped

1/8 to 1/4 of a large bottle of thousand island dressing

6 green onions, chopped

1/4 bag of tortilla chips, crushed

2-3 chopped roma tomatoes (or whatever tomatoes you like)

1 avocado, chopped

1-2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup black olives (leave out if you don’t like)

* brown meat & drain

* add salsa & beans then simmer 20 min, remove from heat

* mix in thousand island dressing & green onions

* put some lettuce & chips on a plate, scoop on some meat mixture then to your taste add on:  tomatoes, avocado, cheese, black olives or whatever you like *

* you can mix in a pkt of taco seasoning with the meat after browning, but the flavor from the salsa & the dressing should probably be enough *

* you can top with sour cream or guacamole, but this meat mixture is so creamy & flavorful you probably won’t want anything else
