While visiting my husband's step-mother, Beverly, in Kentucky this past summer, she made a dish that my husband just fell in love with and I adored. I LOVE mexican-inspired dishes. This is a twist on Taco Salad that is a hit in my house. And what's great about it, is it is totally tweek-able - adjust it to your family's tastes - we did.
1lb browned lean ground beef or turkey, seasoned to taste (we like Lawry's Taco Seasoning or spices from the cupboard)
1 can chili beans
1 can enchilada sauce
1 bag tortilla chips
8 oz cheddar cheese
1 bag of salad mix or lettuce
chopped onion to taste
black olives, sliced
Layer the following in a 9 x 13 inch dish in this order:
warm, browned ground and seasoned meat
warmed chili beans
warmed enchilada sauce
tomator, onion and olives
top with shredded cheese
Serve with sour cream, avocado and whatever your family likes.
