Favorite Taco Salad
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
- 1 (16 ounce) can chili beans or black beans
- 1 cup (about half a bottle) Catalina salad dressing (I used a lite dressing)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 head iceberg lettuce
- Tortilla chips
- Your favorite taco toppings: cheese, tomato, avocado, olives, sour cream, salsa, etc
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef and drain excess fat. Stir in the taco seasoning, chili beans and Catalina dressing. Add 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Set out meat mixture, lettuce, chips, and all other taco toppings. Let everyone assemble their own salad. Top with salad dressing of choice.
We have made this several times over the summer and it hits the spot every time. All the kids like it, it isn't as spicy as other Mexican dishes due to the more sweet Catalina dressing. Our new taco salad of choice.
