Easy Taco Salad

Whenever we think about doing tacos, we always end up with taco salad.   Much less messy, easier to add extra veggies into, and makes the meat go farther. 

Really simple instructions:

Brown some ground beef & onions.  Drain.  Add some taco seasoning if you have some. (I didn’t this time, so I just added a bit of spicy salsa right to the meat).

In a large bowl, combine half a head of shredded lettuce, some tomatoes (canned or fresh), and a bag of  taco chips (I crush them slightly before adding, so they’re in bite-sized pieces), and toss.

Add the ground beef, some shredded cheese, and then some salsa and sour cream to taste.  Toss to combine.  It tastes great right away, when the chips are still crunchy, but it’s also great as leftovers or brought along for a picnic!

I live in Hamilton, Ontario, and love my city. I'm a Netflixer, choral music geek, bookworm, inventor of recipes (I take Artistic Licence on EVERYTHING that I make), wife of one, mother of two, and owner of a neurotic Schnauzer. I respect people who respect others. I love good food that's well done, but my favourite lunch is KD & hotdogs. With ketchup. I'm addicted to Clearance Shopping. I will ALWAYS get the product that I want at the price that I want, eventually.


  1. Yum! Luckily I have most of those ingredients sitting around waiting to be used up and needed some “pinspiration”! Thanks so much for the idea!

  2. This sounds yummy! I’ll have to try to make a vegetarian version of it.

  3. Yum. Taco salad is a favourite at our house. I usually Catalina salad dressing, but I bet just using salsa would taste better.

  4. Make this, but with one difference. After adding the taco meat to the lettuce, cheese and crushed chips, I use a dressing made of equal parts taco sauce and thousand island dressing. Mix well and serve.
