DIRECTIONS

  • Brown and drain the ground beef. Set aside on a paper towel to continue draining and cooling.
  • Dressing: Mix the can of undrained chili beans, the thousand island dressing and the taco seasoning in a bowl. Stir well and set it to the side. (Makes a mean dip for that open bag of tortilla chips you have sitting there! You are cooking dinner, you must be slightly hungry!)
  • Obtain a LARGE bowl. In that bowl place the following: 1 head of torn lettuce, the shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes and olives.
  • Put the hamburger on top of the salad mixings.
  • Find a small child, or a small child at heart and place a slit in the chip bag to avoid a disastrous explosion. Have child smush chips to small pieces. I am sure that "smush" is a highly scientific culinary term! DO NOT MAKE CHIP POWDER, just small pieces. Dump the chips on top of the lettuce mixture.
  • Pour the DRESSING on top of lettuce mixture.
  • Mix well and enjoy. This is where you add the avocado if you are so inclined.
  • Leftovers may be stored in airtight container in the fridge in order to create a congealed "taco salad mess" the next day. Not pretty but quite tasty.
