Taco Salad is one of my favorite meals. During the Spring and Summer months we consume it A LOT! Last week I took it to a family gathering and decided to spruce it up a bit by layering it in my trifle bowl.
This is the taco salad recipe I use:
2 heads of lettuce
2 cups Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
2 cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
(you could use 4 cups of the mexican blend instead)
2 lbs of ground meat (fried and drained)
2 packages of taco seasoning
2 medium tomatoes (diced) ( I don’t always add these because not all of us like tomatoes)
1 bag of crushed tortilla chips
2/3 of a bottle of Italian Dressing
sour cream (optional)
chili beans (optional
Usually I mix all of this together and then add the chips and dressing right before I serve.
|It makes my big tupperware bowl completely full.|
Either way is delicious!

Isn’t that pretty? I love salads layered in glass dishes like that.

That looks very neat in that trifle bowl. I think a trifle bowl would make most things look fancy!
I knew I shouldn’t have opened your blog before I ate. This looks delicious. Thanks for the post.

That's a great twist! We have Taco Night every Friday night; thanks to one of my sons for having the idea. I'll have to try this one time we have company on Taco Night. Thanks!
That looks really good (and pretty in the trifle bowl)! I will definately have to try this – it will go on my menu plan for next month!
I "hopped" over from The Shabby Creek Cottage linky party – would love if you came and visited with me! Thanks!

That looks awesome! How impressive to walk into a gathering or have out at a party!
Great recipe. I will be featuring it tonight at my Swing into Spring party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I’ve Been Featured button. Thanks.
This looks so good in a glass bowl, great work. I want to make mini ones of these in shot glasses for a party, I think they would be a hit!
