Taco Salad

Our favorite go-to meal is tacos. We have tacos a lot, and this kind of breaks up the same-mess a little bit and is still tacos, but in a salad form.  My mother-in-law is also  known for her "traveling taco salad". Every family get together or picnic, she would often times bring her taco salad.

This can be just a salad on a plate, or piled inside of an edible Mexican tortilla bowl. This is really a meal that you can make a variety of ways, with a variety of toppings. Come up with the best combination for your family! 


Head of lettuce-chopped or torn into pieces
2 tomatoes- chopped
Taco meat - prepare as if for tacos with the taco seasoning
shredded cheese
sliced black olives
canned beans (drained) -black, kidney, pinto, or chili
green onions
Frito or tortilla chips
Ranch dressing

Assemble the everything in the salad or separate and let each person create their own favorite taco salad.  Top with Frito chips and Ranch dressing.

You can also serve this piled inside of an edible Mexican bowl and leave out the chips.

Enjoy this super easy and satisfying meal!
