Beef Taco Salad

Beef Taco Salad

Hi! Today I’d like to share my taco salad recipe. I’ve been making it for a long time, and I do it a little differently than what you may have had before. I serve the lettuce and French or Catalina dressing on the side, instead of adding it to the dish. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it!


1 lb. hamburger meat

1 Roma tomato

1 head lettuce

1 large bag tortilla chips

French or Catalina dressing (to taste–I use creamy French)

1 package taco seasoning mix

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (the Mexican blend is good in this also)

1 can ranch style beans (can also use pinto)

salsa  (to taste)

sour cream (to taste)


1. Brown ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain fat. Stir in taco seasoning, beans and 1/2 can of water.

2. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.


3. Crush bag of chips, and toss with cheese and tomato.

4. Combine meat mixture, and top individual dishes with lettuce, dressing, sour cream and salsa (optional).
