Tasty Taco Salad

The picture alone will tell you are in for a treat with this Taco Salad.

Here you have deliciously seasoned ground beef.  And then you get to pile on the lettuce, tomatoes, black beans, corn, red onions and cheese.  This is truly a feast in a bowl.  You then add creamy avocado or guacamole and sour cream and salsa verde.  You can use the sour cream and salsa verde as your dressing or add another favorite dressing.  There are some links below to some of Kevin’s delicious dressings too.

I also like to add some broken tortilla chips for some additional crunch.

This salad is bursting with flavor and just waiting for you to enjoy with friends and family.
