Best Taco Salad













Best Taco Salad...the best traditional Mexican recipe to try !


Traditional Mexican Recipe INGREDIENTS
  • Lettuce (pre-shredded)
  • 1 lb. Ground meat
  • Chipotle seasoning or taco seasoning mix
  • Cheese (pre-shredded)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn (optional)
  • 1 can sliced ripe olives (optional)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small onion
  • 1-2 tomatoes
  • 1 bottle Ranch dressing
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • tortilla chips

Traditional Mexican Recipe INSTRUCTIONS

Chop onion in small pieces. Add onion to ground meat. Season the meat with Chipotle seasoning or Taco Seasoning mix and cook in the microwave using Tupperware’s Oval Microwave Cooker with the colander to drain the grease from the meat or brown the meat and onions together in a frying pan on the stove.
If using the microwave cook the meat for 6 minutes per pound.
If cooking on the stove cook the meat until it is well browned.
In the meantime, pour lettuce into a large bowl to begin the salad.
Tupperware’s Chip N Dip works well for this salad because you can use the dip bowls for salsa and dressing.
Open and drain the black beans, corn, and sliced olives and add to the salad. Next, add the shredded cheese.
Drain your cooked meat well and add to the salad.
Chop tomatoes and avocado and add to the salad.
Next, make the dressing. Mix ½ bottle of ranch dressing, 1/3 cup sour cream, and 1 tsp of chipotle seasoning or taco seasoning mix. Make sure to blend the dressing well.
Serve the tortilla chips in a separate bowl so everyone can add the amount of chips they want for their salad.
Serve salad with dressing and salsa on the side.
This is a simple recipe that you and your guests are sure to enjoy.

If you prefer home-made salsa to store bought salsa to go with your salad, you can make your own using the following recipe.
Use a chopper that mixes or a blender. The Quick Chef from Tupperware is what I use. If you have one or something similar, try using it.
They are usually easier to clean up then a blender.
You will need the following ingredients to make the salsa :
  • One 16 oz can of tomatoes with basil and oregano added
  • Half a large onion
  • Garlic or garlic powder to taste
  • Cilantro to taste
  • Chipotle seasoning to taste
The traditional Mexican recipe is ready for feasts....nice and tasty !
