This week, I’m going to share a favorite family recipe with everyone. I learned it a loooong time ago, and from my dad. It’s cheap, filling, and yummy! Without further ado, I present…

Taco Salad

1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can dark red kidney beans
Shredded lettuce
Shredded cheddar (or taco cheese)

1. After you’ve browned your ground beef, prepare with taco seasoning according to directions on packet.
2. Let meat mixture cool!
3. Combine everything, crushing Tostitos.
4. Serve with Western dressing, as per the traditional (family) way to do it.

Alternately, you can warm a bowl of everything but the Tostitos. Simply spread the chips on a plate, and dump the contents onto it.

Alternately: Omit the ground beef. Add extra kidney beans.

This is a really simple recipe to double. My family insists that, when we make it, we double it.
