Taco Salad
Entry in :pw Salad Contest
This taco salad is yummy for a pitch in. I add the nacho chips and sauce just before serving to keep things from getting soft and wilty.
Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 bag favorite lettuce (or 1 head lettuce cut up)
6-8 ounces shredded cheddar or taco blend cheese
1 avacado, diced and drizzled with lime juice and salt (optional)
1 jar of taco sauce (med-mild)
1 - 1 1/2 cups crushed nacho chips (doritos)

Instructions:

Brown ground beef and add the taco seasoning following the directions on the package.
Allow beef to cool if you aren't eating this right away.
In a large bowl toss the lettuce, cheese and avacado.
Add in the ground beef, taco sauce and chips.
Serve

I have added a can of drained and rinsed black beans or kidney beans to this sometimes. Some people like to add a chopped tomato too.
