Taco Salad

This one is simple to put together and pretty fast to make. The greatest part is you can add anything, meat, beans, cheese, whatever you want. And it’s a good way to use leftovers and to get a lot of veggies in your diet. These ingredients is just what I usually put into mine, you can add whatever you want. Tonight I’m going to add leftover tri-tip to the salad.

Ingredients
1 head of iceburg lettuce, sliced thin
1 carrot, grated
1 cucumber, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 green onion, sliced thin
1 cup shredded cheese
1 avocado, diced
2 cups meat diced (your choice)
1 can kidney or black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 lime cut into wedges
1 cup sour cream
1 cup medium or hot salsa
hot sauce (optional)
cilantro leaves (optional)

In a LARGE bowl layer lettuce, carrot, cucumber, tomatoes, green onion, avocado, cheese, meat and beans. Divide into serving bowls, I usually get about 4 servings out of this amount of salad. Top each with tortilla chips and a lime wedge on the side. Mix together sour cream and salsa. Pour sauce mix onto salads. Top with cilantro leaves if you like and of course you can add extra hot sauce if you want it.
