Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday: Taco Salad

 Taco Salad is one of my husband's favorite meals, and I am also pretty fond of it myself.  It is healthier than a plate of nachos, but tastes just as good, and is super simple to make.
All you need is...
  • Taco Beef/Chicken
  • Shredded/Torn Lettuce
  • Shredded Cheese (I like mild cheddar)
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Crushed Tortilla Chips (like those in the bottom of the bag, Doritos are tasty too)
  • Any salad veggies/legumes you like (I like bell pepper, cucumber, carrots, and extra pintos)
  • Salad dressing (optional, I like just some sour cream and salsa mixed together, Joe prefers things a little more fattening wet)
  1. Place lettuce and salad veggies/legumes in desired bowl.
  2. Heat up your taco meat (I make beef ahead and time and freeze it, so all I have to do is nuke it)
  3. Add crushed chips to veggies.
  4. Top with meat, and cheese, and any other toppings/dressings you desire.
  5. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
