There are a thousand recipes for taco salad out there and I am not a huge fan so I have not tried many.  I do however, love my grandma’s taco salad!  It is fairly simple and makes a great “group” meal.  We have it nearly every time the whole family gets together.

1 lb ground beef

1/2 pkg taco seasoning

1/2 medium onion, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

1 avocado, sliced or chopped

1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded

1/2 cup salsa of your choice

1/2 of a 16 oz bag of tortilla chips

1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, sliced so it falls apart nicely in the bowl

1 cup french dressing of your choice

Brown and drain your ground beef and then return it to the pan.  Sprinkle and mix in the taco seasoning (use 1/2 the package but don’t worry, it does not have to be exact).  Keep on low heat to keep it warm while assembling the rest of the salad.  In a large bowl, add all of your ingredients (when adding the chips, I grab by the handfuls and sort of squish or crush it a little as I add it.  This way it breaks up the chips into smaller pieces).  Stir well and serve with salsa and sour cream.

This recipe serves 6 to 7 people as an only dish.  I imagine if it was served as a side dish or in a potluck setting, it would go further.
