Beef Taco Salad

This salad is straightforward to make and open for more ingredients you’d like to add. This salad doesn’t have it, but I usually will cook a can of Ranch style beans in the taco meat. If you want beans in your chili, this is your opportunity to make greatness.

Ingredients

Taco Meat Parts

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ¼ cup Taco Dust
  • ¼ cup water
  • 14 oz beans Ranch Style optional

Taco Salad Salad Misc Parts

  • 12 oz head of lettuce
  • 4 oz avocado
  • 3 oz tomato
  • 2 cup cheese shredded, Mexican or your fav
  • 1 oz Uglyade
  • 1/4 tsp salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

Make Taco Meat

  • In a medium high heat pan brown meat. I like to cook the piss out of it to get mass fat out.
  • Once cooked put meat in strainer. You can either let it drain naturally or take a saucer and put on top of meat and push down to squish out fat.
  • Put meat back in pan and stir in Taco Dust and water. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes. If using beans add them drained now too.
  • Turn off heat and set taco meat aside.

Taco Salad Construction

  • Take your head of lettuce and tear off enough leaves to make your salad be it 1,2,3 or 4 people. Place on plate or in bowl.
  • Depending on your salad size drop about ½ cup taco meat over lettuce. I like hot meat on salad because it wilts the leaves. This is just a preference but important to me. ;)
  • Dice up your tomato and avocado and put desired amount on salad.
  • Bam! a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Pour Uglyade over salad. Any dressing can be used as an alternative to Uglyade. What I used as a child was Italian dressing.
  • Sprinkle some shredded cheese and you salad is ready to go.
