  • Taco salad - perfect !

    Try this ! Yummy ! Recipe makes two big salads, so double for four or more.
    For the salad shells, you can get the Azteca salad shells that revert onto oven-proof cardboard forms, (in the frig section of the supermarket) bake for about 8 minutes. Or use reverted oven-proof bowls for the forms.

    Perfect hot taco meat and salad assembly:

    (salad ingredients below the meat ingredients)

    1 lb ground beef (or venison or turkey, combination)
    1 fresh, medium onion, chopped
    1/3 cut up green pepper
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon basil
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    ½ teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (NOT salt)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon pepper
    1/2 cup water
    ¼ cup ketchup
    For salad ingredients, see below
    Saute meat and onion and green pepper … turn heat to low.
    REMOVE ALL FAT (so it doesn’t soak into salad shell)
    Mix the herbs etc., into the water mixed with ketchup.
    Add mixture to the meat ; stirring again.
    simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, until the water has been absorbed; ; remove from heat

    Form and bake the salad shells while meat is cooking, have hot & ready with the following prepared for quick assembling.
    6 green onions, sliced, with some green part.
    Shredded lettuce.
    A bag of mixed shredded Mexican Cheese
    Jar of medium salsa
    Sour Cream.
    Optional: black olives, sliced, and fresh cilantro.
    For each serving:
    Put ½ of the meat in the taco salad shell.
    Put shredded lettuce on.
    Sprinkle cheese on.
    Put salsa on.
    Put onions on.
    Repeat above and put a big dollop of sour cream on top. Serve, with more salsa on the side.
