Possibly the Easiest Taco Salad Ever!

And possibily the best too! It is so quck to put together and will dissappear before you have a chance to say "Dinner's on!" I got the original recipe from Recipezaar and changed a few of the details to please my family. Give it a try...and, check out the website - it is great too!

TACO Salad
1 lb ground beef
1 tbs of your favorite chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs brown sugar
1 large tomato, diced
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 large fresh poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cps Iceberg lettuce, shredded
3/4 cp peach salsa (Newman's Own is really great here)
2 tbs mayonnaise
tortilla chips
Co-Jack cheese, finely shredded
1/2 avacado, sliced
Brown beef in skillet until no longer pink.
Drain fat and add next 5 ingredients. Saute until spices are well blended and aromatic.
Turn heat to low while other preparations are accomplished.
Crush tortilla chips in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking dish.
Make a layer with the lettuce.
Make a layer with the pepper, onions and tomatoes.
Make a layer with the meat mixture
Add cheese in desire quantity
Mix mayo and salsa together and pour over top
Add sliced avacado and serve with sour cream and extra salsa on the side.
Give this a try. It is quick, easy on time and easy on the budget. What more can you ask? Oh, right...great flavor...It has that as well!.
