Taco Salad

This was soooo yummy. And so easy to make.

I had a taco salad at Wendy’s last week and it was so yummy that I thought I’d give it a try camping. It is one of those meals that doesn’t take long to cook. It takes minimal ingredients, and kids love it because they get to dig in with their hands. And really. Who doesn’t love nachos and dip.

First step is to make chilli. Or if you are prepared, you made it at home and froze it, to keep other food in your cooler cold.

1 lb of ground beef
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of crushed tomatos
1 pkg of chilli seasoning.

Brown the ground beef. add the kidney beans (drained), the tomatos and the seasoning. Heat it up, and you have chilli.

I also added onions when I cooked the beef. You could add chopped green peppers too, if you are so inclined.

For the rest of the salad, you will need

1 head of lettuce, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
shredded cheese (chedder or nacho blend)
1 jar of salsa
1 container of sour cream.

To put it all together

Put down a layer of lettuce, tomato on top of that, then a handful of the cheese.
Put a couple of spoonfuls of chilli on top of that.
Top with a spoonful of sour cream and salsa.

Eat it up with the nacho chips. Well, ok, you can use a fork, but where’s the fun in that.
