Quick and Easy Taco Salad

We had this last night for dinner, it was amazingly simple and delicious!  I think it took about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Quick and Easy Taco Salad
Serves about 8-10
  • 2 lbs. of ground beef
  • 2 cans of pinto beans, drained
  • 1 can of diced green chilies
  • 2 small OR 1 large can of diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 bag of frozen corn
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp of cumin (I love this stuff so I use a lot more than a Tbsp)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • romaine lettuce
  • toppings of choice - tortilla chips, shredded cheese, fresh tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream
1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet or pot, then drain.
2. Return meat to the pot.  Add beans, chilies, diced tomatoes, corn, tomato sauce, water and spices.
3. Mix and cook on low-medium for about 15-20 minutes.
4. Serve over top of shredded lettuce. Top with toppings of choice. 

Everyone loved this!  We will definitely be eating this again.

I really liked this one because it was good and easy enough to make at the end of a long day.  I think you could even make this earlier in the day and crock pot it on warm or low until dinner time.

This would be a great recipe to serve when having company!
