Handful of tortilla chips (we used blue corn scoops)
3/4 lb ground beef
1 packet mild taco seasoning
1 small head lettuce, torn into small pieces
1/4 avocado, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1.) Brown beef, add seasoning packet and water and cook per package instructions. Remove from heat and keep warm.
2.) Lay down a layer of tortilla chips in the bottom of a bowl.
3.) Layer the lettuce, tomato, avocado, cheese, and beef.
4.) Allow the eaters to add their own sour cream and salsa per their preference. Instruct them to mix it all up and crush the chips at the bottom. Eat and enjoy!
Total Time: 20 minutes
I always love taco salad and was excited to do this as another salad variation to use up some of the abundance of lettuce we have been getting from our CSA over the pasted few weeks. I highly recommend this and encourage anyone to play with the components to make the salad more to your taste.
