Monday: Beef Taco Salad (or chicken if you prefer)

This recipe is easy to make, tastes delicious, and it doesn't feel like you are eating a salad. :) Beef Taco Salads are very easy to whip together when you need to bring something to a potluck or a party of some kind.

Brown and drain 1 lb. beef. Add a taco seasoning packet and stir into the beef. (In the picture I show Southwestern Seasoning, because that is what we had on hand.) Mix whatever veggies you like. I used chopped up cucumber and tomato. Add a bag of salad and about 2-3 cups of crushed tortilla chips. Thousand Island or Western dressing goes great with this salad. 1000 Island is my personal fave. Toss and serve.

There is a lot of flexibility in this salad. Add more of less of each ingredient depending on your taste. While ground beef is my preference, I have also tried ground turkey and chicken and that was very yummy as well. Mix and serve. Isn't it great when dinner is a salad!?!
