I haven’t posted much at all lately, but even when I have posted, I haven’t shared many recipes. I’d like to break the recipe-posting-fast today by sharing my favorite version of taco salad. My mom makes it this way, and has for as long as I can recall. I have no idea where she got the recipe. It’s yummy and very easy – my two qualifications for a recipe! 🙂 I hope to be sharing a few other recipes in the days to come.

Taco Salad
1 lb. hamburger meat
1 package taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1 can refried beans
1 small jar of taco sauce, or 3/4 cup.
shredded lettuce
shredded cheese
Olives, tomatoes, sour cream and/or any other topping you like on taco salad
Nacho Cheese Doritos chips
Brown meat in a skillet until no longer pink, drain.
Add taco seasoning and water. Stir, bring to boil, simmer for 5 minutes or so.
Add refried beans and taco sauce, heat through.
Make a nice bed of lettuces and pour meat mixture on top. Top with cheese, tomatoes, etc. Place Doritos chips around salad, or crumble on top.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
