Taco Salad

This salad is bursting with flavor and is quick to make when you are tight on time. To make a more kid friendly version, I use the same ingredients to make nachos that are easier to eat with little fingers.

Prep time:  10 mins

Serves: 4-6

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 Cups Taco Meat
  • 1 Can of Kidney Beans, rinse and drained
  • 2-3 Hearts of Romaine, Rough Chopped
  • 2-3 Roma Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Can of Black Olives, diced, drained
  • 1 Cup Colby Jack Cheese, shredded
  • Tortilla Chips or Fritos (Fritos will give you more of a sweet & salty flavor combined with the catalina dressing)
  • Salsa or Catalina Salad Dressing

Directions to Build your Salad

  • Layer your bowl with lettuce, meat, beans, olives, chips, cheese, salsa, and dressing
  • Or for a nacho version-layer your plate with Chips, topped with Meat, Beans, and Cheese.
  • Garnish with a little lettuce and tomato on top
