“This is a simple make-your-own taco salad. Both my kids, ages six and two, LOVE this! I have made this both with two boneless chicken breasts and beef. Both are a great hit and so easy. I have also used this for Super Bowl party... they LOVED it!”

Directions

  1. Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease. Mix in taco seasoning mix and water. Bring the beef mixture to a boil and cook until thickened, about 10 more minutes. Transfer beef to a serving bowl.
  2. Place chopped onion, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, black olives, salsa, jalapeno peppers, sour cream, and corn chips in individual serving bowls. Allow diners to assemble their own salads from the ingredients.

I used a homemade taco seasoning mix and V-8 instead of water in the taco meat and homemade salsa and reduced fat sour cream for the salad. This was great for us because each of us could make our salad the way we want it and it's a nice change up from your typical taco night. I made mexican rice and refried beans to go with.

Ahhh, someone after my own heart! Have done this since I moved away from home four decades ago with leftovers from Build Your Own Taco meals. Many who I serve to don't like taco seasoning so opt to use plain ground meat instead. Besides ground beef or chicken try pork because it's tasty too. And simply 'must' add diced avocado that has been tossed in lemon or lime juice and some fresh chopped cilantro to the ingredient list too

I love having 'assemble your own taco salads' for dinner! It puts less work on me trying to remember who likes what, and I find that my little guy (or any kids for that matter) will eat more if he makes it the way he wants it. Super simple and fun! :)
