Taco Salad

We went apartment hunting this weekend. I haven’t looked for a place in so long I forgot how hard it is to find a good one.
One of the places we looked at had a Boston Pizza right across the street, which could be dangerous!

Boston Pizza used to have a taco salad on its menu. It came in one of those huge tortilla bowls! It was always one of my favourites.
 

This is a much simpler version but still very tasty! No huge tortilla bowl, but really they never tasted that great anyway.

What you need,

1 cup taco spiced ground beef, cooled
2 cups lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, diced
½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 green onion, chopped
2 cups nacho chips, crushed into smallish pieces
¼ cup Catalina or Russian salad dressing
Salsa and Sour Cream for serving + some whole nacho chips

In a large bowl combine the ground beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese, green onion, toss to combine. Crush about 1 ½ cups of the nacho chips and toss them into the beef mixture.
Pour the dressing over and stir until well coated.

Serve the salad on a large plate with sprinkle the remaining half cup of crushed nacho chips over the top.
Serve with some salsa and sour cream and a few whole nacho chips.
 

I love this salad, it is simple and quick, such a great way to use up left over taco meat!

Enjoy!
