Taco salad is one of my favorite salad recipes that I can probably eat every day. Taco salad is a super easy and delicious Mexican salad recipe, a perfect combination of ground beef, taco seasoning, ketchup, mayo, tomato, lettuce and cheese. Taco salad can be served as an easy light meal or side dish.
Yield: Serves 5-6
- 250 g extra lean ground beef
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 large tomato, diced
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons crushed tomatoes
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- cooking oil
- 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
- 5 cups torn lettuce
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- corn chips, optional
- salt & pepper to taste
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 6 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; add the ground beef and saute until no longer pink, stirring occasionally.
Drain well and return to the skillet if needed. Add the ketchup, crushed tomatoes, turmeric, oregano, taco seasoning, salt and pepper. Cover the skillet and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, tomato, beef mixture, mayonnaise, cheddar, and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with corn chips. Serve immediately.
