Ground beef taco salad is one of my go-to meals when I don't have that much time to cook, but want to get a healthy and kid-approved meal on the table!
Fry up the 1 lb of lean ground beef until browned and cooked throughout.
Drain the fat and mix in 2 tbsp of the taco seasoning mix. If you added cornstarch to your homemade taco seasoning,, add in 1/4 cup of water to the mix.
Cook until the taco seasoning is all mixed throughout the beef and thickened up.
Remove from the heat and place in a bowl.
You have two options to make this taco salad:
One, place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix, then serve.
Two, place the ingredients on a platter and then serve.
Both options work, the first is fast and easy, the second looks amazing in presentation. It's up to you!
This taco salad is meant to feed a family of four as a main dish. If you aren't serving as a main dish you can adjust the ingredient amounts accordingly.
