taco salad

Recipe name: taco salad
Source: made it up
Servings: 4
Cookbook date: July 12
Date prepared: July 13

1 head of iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 small tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups hot pepper or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 pound ground turkey
bag of corn tortilla chips
Ranch salad dressing (optional)

Brown the turkey and onions in a large skilled over med-high heat. Meanwhile, prepare each plate by putting down a layer of tortilla chips, lettuce and tomatoes. Drain the turkey. Add the meat to the top of the salad. Top with desired amount of cheese. Add salsa on top, and ranch dressing.

This was so easy and SO tasty. I got some low fat Ranch dressing to go with it and it was so yummy! It totally brought me back to the days of eating at Effie's Cantina in Enterprise, Alabama with my Memaw and Aunt Gail. I will totally make this again. I may add some sort of spice to the meat next time, although it really tasted great as is since we used hot pepper cheese.
