FAST AND FURIOUS FRIDAY MEALS- Tequila Lime Taco Salad
This is not only a quick dinner, it was a throw together inspiration from items already in my fridge or pantry that I didn't have to go to the store to purchase.
The flavored salsa makes this meal, so you don't want to use just any ole salsa- go for the tequila Lime flavor! It gives it a little kick!
Perfect for a lazy weekend cook!
YOU WILL NEED:
1 lb.ground beef (brown and drain)
1 pkg. taco seasoning (plus water amount suggested on pkg.)
Add to beef.
3 T. Tequila Lime Salsa (I used Kroger brand)
1 can of red beans, drained.
Add to beef mixture and cook until heated through.
1 cup Shredded cheese (I used mozzarella -of all things- only because I was out of everything else- but I'd say cheddar would be best!)
Lettuce, tomato, black olives or your favorite taco toppings.
Salsa on the side.
Bag of Tortilla chips
Arrange Chips in large plate/bowl and cover with meat mixture and your favorite toppings.
