Ground Beef Taco Salad

In spring we look for something light and refreshing on the menu after the heavier comfort food of winter; this ground beef salad is a great solution


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup bean dip
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 1/2 cup corn chips



  1. Drain tomatoes, reserving 2 tablespoons liquid. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, crumbling meat; drain. Stir in bean dip, chili powder, salt and reserved tomato liquid. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup drained tomatoes (save remaining for another use), lettuce, cheese, onions and olives. Add beef mixture; toss to coat. Top with chips. Serve immediately.
