Taco Salad

My boys LOVE taco salad and I enjoy making it so much!
It gives me ample room to get creative and make the best use of many of the ingredients I always keep in stock in my pantry.

Guacamole ๐Ÿฅ‘
Cherry Tomatoes ๐Ÿ… 
Corn ๐ŸŒฝ
Olives ๐Ÿซ’
Black Beans ๐ŸŒฏ
Jalapeรฑos ๐Ÿซ‘
Lime ๐Ÿ‹
Salsa Verde ๐ŸŒฟ
Sour Cream ๐Ÿš
Taco Sauce ๐Ÿฅซ

The meat is seasoned and cooked to perfection ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
The homemade Taco Seasoning recipe:
๐ŸŒถ 1 tablespoon chili powderย 
๐Ÿง… 1/2 tsp onion powderย 
๐ŸŒฟ 1/2 tsp oreganoย 
๐ŸŒถ 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
๐Ÿง„ 1/2 tsp garlic powderย 
๐Ÿง‚ 1 tsp paprikaย 
๐Ÿฅ„1 1/2 tsp cumin
๐Ÿง‚ 1 tsp salt
๐Ÿฅ„ 1 tsp black pepper
Mix well and store in an airtight jar. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

So letโ€™s get to the recipe:
– Here I used 2.5 pounds 90% lean ground beef.
– Heat a thick bottom non-stick skillet very well.
– Add the chopped meat and break it up with a wooden spoon. No need to add oil or butter to the skillet.
– Cook the meat on medium hight heat until itโ€™s completely browned, stirring it frequently, so it cooks and browns evenly.
– Add 2 batches of Taco Seasoning mix. You can use your favorite store bought brand, or make your own at home like it did. Youโ€™ll find the recipe in my previous post.
– Stir the the meat with spices, lower heat to medium-low, add 1/3 cup of hot water, cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the meat has fully cooked and absorbed all the water.
– Set it aside to cool off a little, while you put the salad platter together.
– I chopped up some romaine lettuce, cut a few cherry tomatoes in half and arranged them on the serving plate with shredded cheddar cheese. Lastly, I added a handful of the taco meat in the center and topped it with some chives.
I put all the other toppings and sauces in separate bowls, so we can each customize it to our taste and liking.
And voila! Bon Appรฉtit โค๏ธ
