Directions

  1. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 8 minutes; stir in taco mix and water. Cook beef mixture until thickened, about 10 more minutes.
  2. Place black beans into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the beef mixture on a serving plate and top with 1/4 of the black beans. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 salads. Spread separate layers of romaine lettuce, salsa, tomatoes, and cheese over the salads. Generously garnish with sour cream and tortilla chips.

I made this as a quick lunch today. I used ground turkey instead of beef, homemade taco seasoning and V-8 in place of the water. I also used homemade salsa and reduced fat sour cream. Because I'm eating low-carb, I skipped the chips on my portion. NO LEFTOVERS.

Definitely easy and tasty! This does make for a simple weeknight meal. I used lean ground beef and "Taco Seasoning II" from this site and didn't bother with the water, just seasoned the beef and browned it. I de-seeded a few plum tomatoes before dicing and used a light Mexican blend cheese. I added some chopped black olives and green onion for a better presentation and cut back on the sour cream and chips using just enough for each salad. To lighten it up a bit I used light sour cream and baked chips...

I tend to want to layer my taco salads with the lettuce on the bottom unless I am using a large taco shell for the base - that said - this is a fine recipe - the nutritional information was a little scary - I didn't use any where near the amount of sour cream, cheese & chips called for. Makes for a nice fast dinner.

We liked it. I used ground chicken instead of beef. Easy to prepare. Will make again.
