Thursday Recipe - Old-Fashioned Taco Salad

Can't beat good old taco salad. This is the cold version, where everything is tossed together. It's a bit different than the taco stack version. It would be great for a picnic sometime.

Cold Taco Salad

1 lb hamburger
2 T. taco seasoning
2 green onions, sliced up
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 c. fritos corn chips
1/3 c. ranch dressing
sliced avocado
sliced olives

Brown hamburger. Drain off grease. Stir in taco seasoning. Set aside to cool.

Toss lettuce with tomato, onions, cheese, and fritos. Add hamburger and dressing. Toss again to coat. Garnish with avocado and olives. Serve immediately.

If you want to serve it later, keep the fritos out until ready to serve.
