Taco Salad

These taco salads are a fun inexpensive dinner. We love to have these for a quick dinner that doesn’t take too much work. We start by crushing Doritos or tortilla chips in a bowl.

Then add a layer of chopped lettuce

Next layer is black beans and corn.

Then add sautéed bell peppers and onions

Add tomatoes

Add cooked ground beef seasoned with Old El Paso taco seasoning.

Add a dollop of sour cream

Add a little cheese and salsa or hot sauce and it doesn’t even need dressing

And there you have it! Taco salad!
