Recipe by BecR

Tender beef sirloin strips and a variety of fresh toppings take this salad (or nachos) waaay over the top!!! Sour cream and a squeeze of fresh lime is the only dressing you'll need, although we also like it with Thousand Island or Ranch. Note: For some super duper nachos, layer the meat and your favorite toppings between tortilla chips, top with shredded cheese and olives, and pop in the microwave for a minute, just until the cheese is melted--YUM!! ENJOY!
