Super Simple Taco Salad

I got my mama to make this taco salad when she was visiting for the holidays.  It was one of my faves as a kid!  And while I wouldn’t call it healthy, it’s a good, super tasty way to get a decent amount of veggies into your family.


All you need:
Medium head of lettuce
6 oz cheese (I like cheddar, my mom likes American b/c it melts better)
1lb ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 large tomato, chopped
2 cups Fritos (more if you’d like)

1. Brown your ground beef.  while you’re doing that, cut up your lettuce and tomato and put in a large mixing bowl.

2. Season meat with taco seasoning per the packet directions (except add 1/4 cup extra water).  While you’re doing that, shred your cheese.

3. Add the cheese, Fritos and taco meat to the large mixing bowl, and stir it up!

It’s much easier to mix if the bowl is big enough you don’t have to worry about slopping all over your counter.

The warm meat will melt the cheese a bit, and the extra water allows everything to get nice and coated in taco-y seasoning.  Enjoy!
