In a large skillet, brown ground meat, breaking up into small chunks as you cook the meat.
Once meat is browned, drain off excess fat. Add in beans, taco seasoning, tomato sauce, and water. Simmer on low until water is evaporated, about 5-7 minutes.
Prepare Taco Salad Dressing
Mix together sour cream/yogurt with salsa and juice of fresh lime.
Prepare Taco Salad
Place chopped lettuce into a large serving bowl. Top with taco meat, diced tomatoes, onions, avocados, cheese, and any other desired toppings. Toss well to combine.
Add taco salad dressing and toss to combine again.
Serve with tortilla chips.
For Taco Seasoning use:
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Of course feel free to use Sofritas in place of taco meat or additional beans to keep this vegetarian friendly. Feel free to serve all the toppings and dressing on the side so that everyone can mix and match what they like on their Taco Salad.
