Taco Salad Recipes


1 lb ground beef (chicken or turkey)
homemade taco seasoning
1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
green olives
black olives
1 cups shredded cheddar cheese
diced tomatoes
chopped onion
Dorito's chips, crumbled
1 cup salsa, recipe below
guacamole, recipe below
sour cream

Brown and drain hamburger. Add taco seasoning to the browned hamburger mixture, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cheese and onions. Just before serving, stir in crumbled Doritos and mayonnaise mixed with 1 cup of taco sauce.


3 large ripe tomatoes
2 green bell peppers
1 white onion
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
2 TBS fresh lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, or to taste
1 garlic clove
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Cut off the tops of the green peppers and remove seeds. Cut off the tops of the jalapenos but do not remove seeds. Cut the outer skin off the onion and cut in four sections.

Place these items in a food processor and run until everything is small. I usually do not leave big chunks of the jalapeno as small chopped bits blend better and give flavor throughout the salsa.

Wash the tomatoes and cut off the tops and cut them in half our fourths and put them in the food processor with the garlic clove on top of the already chopped up peppers and onions.

Process these until the tomatoes are well chopped. Open the food process and remove the container and put a strainer in your sink and pour the mixture from the processor into the strainer and let strain all the excess liquid from the tomatoes.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Cover and chill.

This is another tasty recipe for fresh salsa. Your friends and family will BEG you for this recipe Wonderful addition to my taco salad recipe.
