Taco Salad

Ok, so we ate a lot of tacos this week.  Actually, I made this to bring to a party at a friends.  The salad is very simple but it’s the unusual dressing that anyone with a sweet tooth will love.

1 head of lettuce
1 lb. ground meat (or turkey or vegie version)
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 large onion, diced
2-4 medium tomatoes, diced
1 package taco seasoning (or use the taco spice mix)
1 bag tortilla chips

Dressing #1

8 oz. thousand island dressing
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp. taco seasoning mix


Dressing #2 (I have personally never used this one)
sour cream

Brown the meat; prepare meat as on taco seasoning.

Layer meat on bottom of rectangular, deep pan (13″ x 3″ x 5″); top with onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese.

Add dressing when ready to serve. Toss and serve with chips.
