As promised here is the taco salad recipe with pictures I blogged about in MPM.
Here's what you'll need!
1.5 lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
2 cans rinsed, drained kidney beans
1 small onion diced
1/2 head of iceburg lettuce chopped
2 medium tomatoes chopped
1/4 bag taco chips (I use cheese Dorritos) crunched up - just put them in a gallon size ziplock and roll them with a rolling pin a few times.
3/4 bottle of Thousand Island Dressing - just go with me on this.
Dice your onion and set aside.
Brown and drain your ground beef,
add to it the package of taco seasoning, water (I ended up using about 3/4 of a cup of water)
and onions, allow to cook 5 minutes untill all of the beef is saturated in seasony goodness, set it aside to cool a bit.
Next pull out the biggest bowl you have and your chopping board, chop lettuce, tomatoes and throw 'em in the bowl.
Throw in your kidney beans,
Gently toss these ingriedients together.
Add your ground beef and onion mixture and the Thousand Island (trust me you won't regret it)
Mix it all together and enjoy!
This is also good cold the next day.
