Taco Salad


  • 1 head green lettuce, I use boston
  • 1lb chicken or ground beef
  • tomatos
  • 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.
