taco salad

When I was growing up, this was what we had for lunch on Saturdays. Comfort food at its best. To read a post related to this recipe, click here.

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 onion, diced
1 can Ranch Style beans, drained (Pintos are OK if you can't get Ranch Style)
1 head iceberg lettuce
Ranch dressing
Fritos corn chips

Saute the onion with a little bit of oil until tender; add beef and half of taco seasoning and cook until done. Drain and let cool.

Chop lettuce into small pieces and put in bottom of large mixing bowl. Layer beef mixture, beans, other half of taco seasoning, cheese, and toss. Add dressing to your liking and mix well.

Just before serving, toss in the Fritos.

If you don't plan to eat the whole salad at once, keep the meat and bean mixture, dressing, lettuce, and Fritos separate from each other until you're ready to serve; then you can make individual servings as you wish.
