Recipes - Taco the Town Taco Salad
This is a multi-step recipe. Spiced sour cream and taco bowls may be made a day in advance, but other components (taco beef and salsa) are best if made fresh.

Makes: 6 dinner-size servings

Ingredients:

Taco Beef


Chunky Avocado Salsa


Spiced Sour Cream


Salad


Tortilla Bowls


Taco Seasoning



Directions:

Taco Beef

   1. Cook beef, onions, green pepper, garlic, and jalapeno in a large (12-inch) non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir often and break up large pieces of meat as it cooks. Do not drain. Sprinkle taco seasoning over beef, then add broth and ketchup. Mix well. Reduce heat to medium and let mixture cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Chunky Avocado Salsa

   1. Gently toss together all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Note: This salsa tastes best if made just before serving

Spiced Sour Cream

   1. Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Salad

   1. To assemble salad (either individual servings or on a large platter), layer ingredients in the following order: lettuce, hot beef mixture, corn, black beans, bheese, sour cream drizzle, avocado salsa, cheese, sour cream drizzle.

Tortilla Bowls

   1. Mix 1 to 2 tbsp olive oil with to tsp taco seasoning mix. Using a pastry brush, coat both sides of 6 small whole grain tortillas with oil mixture. Press tortillas into deep disposable tin bowls. Bake at 400F for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Tortillas will crisp as they cool. If not using immediately, cover with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 1 day. Note: Tortillas must be very fresh (soft) in order for this to work. They can be microwaved for a few seconds to soften if necessary.

Taco Seasoning

   1. Makes enough seasoning for this recipe. You may wish to double the recipe and store the leftover seasoning in an air-tight container for future use.
