BLT Taco Salad

I don't believe I'll be making this again...
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning (I make mine w/ 1tsp each: chili powder, garlic powder, minced onion, seasoning salt)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fat free sour cream w/ 1 tsp chili powder mixed in
  • 1/2 cup Thick 'n Chunky salsa
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup green olives, slice (I RECOMMEND NIXING THIS!)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 4 cups iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 .33 oz chili cheese-flavored Fritos

1. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasonings and water. Reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of liquid is absorbed.
2. In large bowl, mix sour cream and salsa. Stir in beef mixture, bacon and olives. Gently fold in tomatoes and lettuce.
3. Divide salad among 4 individual plates. Sprinkle with cheese and chips. Serve immediately.

  1. I didn't care for it...but I don't like sour cream that much and I could taste it...and the olives just made it WEIRD (and I like olives).
