Mini Beef Taco Salad

Mini Beef Taco Salad

Mark Farmer 43

"Me and my wife like taco salads, but we always share one. this time I decided to make two mini taco salads, and they turned out to be the perfect size for us. For this recipe I also used cheddar and Gruyere cheese. I only used Gruyere cheese because I had some left over from hamburgers we had a few days earlier, but it was good also. You can omit Gruyere cheese or just use any cheese you want. Mexican Queso Fresco crumble cheese is also a good topping cheese. I fried the tortillas using a taco salad deep fryer form that you can buy from"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Pan Fry ground beef
  2. Take all the items for the sauce and put into a sauce pan and turn on low and allow the sauce to cook for 30 mins to an hour.
  3. take some of the sauce and add it to the ground beef. allow to continue to cook on low so the sauce can soak into the ground beef, and keep the ground beef warm.
  4. Take Tortilla and place into a taco salad form and deep fry for 3 mins. when you take the tortilla out allow the oil to drain back into the deep fryer, and place on some paper towels. The shell will puff up like taco bell gorditas.
  5. Place tortillas on a plate, add refried beans to the bottom of the tortilla, shredded lettuce, sour cream, black olives, top with the ground beef mixture, sauce, and cheese.
