This is one of my own recipes that I just threw together one day several years ago and have been making ever since. I like it, because it’s easy, and I’m all about easy when it comes to preparing food, but it also tastes great.


  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 pkg of taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (24 oz) pkg of salad kit (I use the ones with shredded carrots, cabbage, and/or different types of lettuce)
  • 1 large tomato or 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 c-1/2 c shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Tortilla chips
  • Optional–garnish with avocado or guacamole


  • Cook the ground beef in a skillet till beef is all browned; drain and put beef back in skillet
  • Add taco seasoning mix according to the instructions and simmer, covered ~ 15 minutes
  • While the beef is simmering, pour the salad mix into a large bowl and add the diced tomato
  • When the beef is ready, make sure there isn’t a lot of liquid in the pan, and add to the salad
  • Add the Mexican blend cheese and toss the salad
  • Add tortilla chips last, toss once or twice
  • Garnish with guacamole or avocado
