Two posts in one day!! After the famine, feast? Don't anybody croak on me. Heh.
It's been so long since I posted a recipe, or even did any serious cooking, I actually had to go hunting for my recipe box. Next week's Carnival of the Recipes is an International Foods theme, and since Cinco de Mayo is coming up, I thought a pseudo Mexican dish would be the closest thing I could do. Sorry, no pictures yet. But if I get ambitious, I may make this for Saturday, to go with my Mexican Mocha, and
pics will follow. (And if they're blurry, it's because I'll be having ta-kill-ya in my cup.)
C. Torres' Taco Salad
1 head lettuce, shredded
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
8 oz cheddar cheese
1 lb hamburger
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn
1 large bag of Doritos (or other taco type chips)
1/3-1/2 bottle Italian dressing
1 package taco seasoning (Lawry's or other)
Brown hamburger with onions, adding taco seasoning when almost fully browned. Drain and add beans (include the juice), and corn (don't include the juice), and let the mixture cool in a bowl in the refrigerator.
Add lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, hamburger mixture, and italian dressing to a large bowl. Mix well. Mix Doritos into the salad just before serving, so they're slightly crisp. Serve with sour cream, salsa, chips. If you like "hot and spicy", add some chopped jalapeno peppers to the hamburger mixture.
