 Ingredients List

  • For the Taco Meat
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 ounce taco seasoning mix
  • For the Salad
  • 3 iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 5 tomatoes, seeded and chopped,
  • 1 large onion, peeled and diced
  • 30 ounces ranch-style beans, drained
  • 1 cup sliced olives, drained
  • 16 ounces corn chips
  • 16 ounces Catalina salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


For the Taco Meat
In a skillet over medium heat, add ground beef. Cook, breaking into pieces with back of the spoon, for about 3 to 5 minutes or until it begins to release fat. Drain excess fat if needed. Add onions and garlic and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until beef lightly browns and onions and garlic are softened.
Add water and taco seasoning mix. Stir until well-dispersed. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 7 to 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat and let cool.

For the Salad
In a trash bag or very large container, combine taco meat, lettuce, beans, olives, corn chips, salad dressing, salsa, and cheese. Gently toss until well-distributed. Transfer to serving container.
