Corn Chip Taco Salad



This taco salad was such a great weeknight meal. Can I add, absolutely perfect to throw together on a school night! Make it even easier on yourself and cook up the ground beef with taco seasoning and freeze in 1lb packages, that way when you're ready to make this tasty salad it's just a matter of thawing the meat in the fridge that morning! Silas really got a kick out of the corn chips, and the Catalina dressing was the perfect compliment to the Mexican flavors. Definitely added this to our regular rotation. Try it!

from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

1 bag romaine lettuce blend
1 lb ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can of black beans
1 bag Steamfresh corn
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
2 cups corn chips
Catalina salad dressing


Cook and drain ground beef, return to pan and add taco seasoning and 2/3 cup water. Simmer about 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed. In a salad bowl, place lettuce, taco meat, black beans (drained and rinsed), corn, and tomatoes. Top with cheese and corn chips. Toss together to combine. Serve with dressing.
