Taco Time!

I was craving something meaty and flavorful today. I had just finished lunch (tomato bisque soup and some chips) and I knew what I wanted for dinner... taco salad! Yup, a family favorite growing up and super simple to boot. I lost the recipe somewhere around the house so I called my mom to get the basics. I didn't reach her so I basically went by memory. I'll update the blog once I get the correct ingredients/measurements.

Taco Salad
  • ground beef
  • onion
  • bell pepper
  • kidney beans
  • enchilada sauce
  • tomato
  • lettuce
  • cheese (cheddar or american)
  • Fritos
Heat skillet and drizzle with oil. Strain kidney beans and place into a pot and cook on low. Add onions and bell peppers* to the skillet and saute. Put enchilada sauce in small pot and cook on low. Add beef to skillet and season (I used garlic salt and pepper). Cook until browned.

Chop up lettuce and tomato and shred cheese. Drain beef and add to bottom of a casserole or square dish. Add cheese on top of the beef, then kidney beans, then lettuce and tomato. Top with Fritos and drizzle with enchilada sauce.

Serve and enjoy!

Note: This dish does not do well as left overs so eat up!

* I know for sure that my mom doesn't do this. She puts the bell pepper on with the lettuce and tomato and I'm not sure if she adds onion. But I love the taste of cooked pepper and onion and hate raw :)
