This was enjoyed by all tonight. We're in the midst of a heat wave and this recipe was perfect. It's both quick to prepare and delicious. I made one change and used 5% sour cream instead of mayo. It would be easy to jazz this up by adding garlic to the frying beef and adding some chopped green onions to the mix before serving. Made for PRMR tag.
Made this for lunch for DD and I. I didn't have taco sauce, so used 1/4 cup of rotel tomatoes and chilis, I left out the olives and used kidney beans instead, personal preference and used restaurant style torilla chips. We thought this turned out perfect. I don't like the taco salads with the french or thousand island style dressing so this was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing Lainey!! Made for Photo tag.
Outstanding!! I love taco salads. This was a great meal which didn't heat up the kitchen.... and trust me when it is in the 100's here I DO NOT want to heat up the kitchen. Thank you Lainey!
