- 1 head green lettuce, I use boston
- 1lb chicken or ground beef
- 1 Avocado
- 1 can black beans
- 1/2 cup grated cheese - I like old cheddar
- 1tbsp olive oil
- juice of 1 lime - about 3 tbsp
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
- taco sauce
- tortilla chips
- sour cream if you like it, I don't
Thinly slice the lettuce, dice the tomatoes and avocado.
Mix the oil, lime juice and vinegar using a whisk or fork, put in a big bowl with the lettuce, tomatoes, avocado. Toss, let it sit while you prepare everything else.
Season the meat with either taco seasonings or a mix of cayenne, cumin, chilli powder, garlic powder, etc. Cook it.
Cook the beans: drain and rinse the beans, put in a pot, covered with 2 inches of water, bring to boil and simmer for 30-45 minutes, drain. You might want to let them sit for a bit to dry out.
cover the bottom of your plate or bowl with the tortilla chips, crunch them a bit to flatten them and break into bit sized pieces. Pile on some lettuce mix, meat, beans. Top with cheese. Drizzle taco sauce, sour cream, etc on top.
