What’s for dinner?  My version of Taco Salad.

Even though I shouldn’t eat raw vegetables there comes a time when I just need to crunch on something raw.  This is a great salad to make.  It’s easy and it’s filling.

 

Warm Taco Chili Salad

¾ pound ground beef

1 taco seasoning package

1 can of Chili

½ head of lettuce, chopped

1 large tomato, diced

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

½ cup cheesy parmesan salad dressing

¼ bag of Fritos Corn Chips

 

Mix lettuce, tomato and cheese in a very large bowl.  Fry ground beef and mix with the taco seasoning per package directions.  Heat the chili to boiling.  Pour the taco seasoned ground beef and the hot chili over the lettuce mixture and stir to mix.  Add the salad dressing and mix again.  Pour in the Fritos and mix again. Eat it while the lettuce is still warm and crispy.

*made from scratch salad dressing:  mix ¼ cup olive oil, 1/8 cup vinegar, 3 tbls parmesan cheese, 2 tsp sugar and 1/8 cup water and salt and pepper to taste.
