One of our favorite things to eat is Mexican food. Lots of times we just go out to our favorite restaurant but I still don’t think you can beat the homemade version of my favorite….. Taco Salad.
Of course, there are many different ingredients you can use, but here’s what I use:
Grated extra sharp cheese
1000 Island Dressing
Now that last ingredient (1000 Island Dressing) might surprise you….the first time I was introduced to it, I thought Yuck! But to me, it just makes the salad.
All I do is brown my ground beef (you could use ground turkey), then drain off the grease. Then just build your salad on your plate. No matter how “small” you start out, this salad seems to grow on your plate. I usually start with a bottom layer of lettace, then add the ground beef, then everything else, top it off with cheese, salsa and chips. I then drizzle the 1000 Island Dressing on top of everything, mix it up a little and dig in! I promise you, this will become one of your favorite quick & easy recipes to fix when time is tight or you just want a little south-of-the-border meal.
