(Inside: A quick and easy way to make one of my favorite restaurant treats: The Simple Taco Salad. I’m seriously in love with this recipe–might have to snag another one.)
So, the end of the day comes and I want nothing more than to head to my favorite restaurant and order up one of my favorite meals–the taco salad.
But, alas, I am lazy and too tired to even hit the streets to go to a restaurant.
What. Is. A. Girl. TO DO?!
Make one her dang-self, that’s what.
Seriously, it’s so much more simple to make myself a Simple Taco Salad at home than it is to load up the kids and drive over to the Tex-Mex place-of-choice for the evening.
Then unload the kids.
Somehow get us inside without anyone getting run over in the parking lot.
Get sat at a table–and not lose anyone.
AND WE STILL HAVEN’T EVEN ORDERED.
Just stop. I seriously can’t go any further. This isn’t happening.
I’m just staying home and making a Taco Salad for my dern self.
It’ll take less time and a bajillionty times less stress.
If you’re tired of all that jazz, too, feel free to make yourself a Simple Taco Salad.
And pin it–because you know that night is coming where you’d like to not go out too…
Simple Taco Salad
This is a quick and easy way to make one of my favorite restaurant treats, the Taco Salad! I'm seriously in love with this recipe--I might have to eat one more.
- 1 lbs ground beef
- 1 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
- 1 small onion
- 1 romain lettuce heart
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I use dairy-free diaya cheese)
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I use diary-free diaya cheese)
- 1 can black beans
- 4 tortilla shell bowls
In a pan over medium heat, add ground beef and homemade taco seasoning.
While that's cooking, chop onion and immediately add it to the pan.
While that's still cooking, chop tomatoes, wash lettuce, shred cheese, if you're doing that and drain beans.
When the meat is almost done cooking, add beans to the pan and allow them to heat.
Layer lettuce, meat, tomatoes and cheese in the tortilla bowls and serve those babies up!
