Taco Salad
Ingredients:
Tortilla Chips
1/2 lb. ground meat
Taco Seasoning
Salsa or Diced Tomatoes
Corn
Salad Greens (we used spinach in our case)
Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream
.
Cover bottom layer of plate with tortilla chips. Prepare ground meat with taco seasoning and add to plate, along with salsa/tomatoes and corn. Cover with cheddar cheese. Turn oven on broil, and place plates under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes until cheese melts. Add fresh greens and sour cream.
.
Additional notes:
I had originally listed salsa in the shopping list, but when I went to our pantry I decided to use diced tomatoes (from the food yardsale!) instead, which would have been less expensive on the list I provided. It was probably much friendlier to my 7 week old’s stomach, too!
.
We’ve also tried this with dorito style chips, as well, and like the additional flavor.
.
We watered down the sour cream, which is probably why it looks so “soupy.”.
.
For menus for the rest of the week, go here.
