Beef: This meaty taco salad starts with a pound of lean ground beef.

Seasoning: Use store-bought or homemade taco seasoning mix.

Chips: Crushed tortilla chips add welcome crunch and salty flavor.

Lettuce: You can't have taco salad without shredded iceberg lettuce!

Toppings: Top your taco salad with Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, salsa (store-bought or homemade, of course), and sour cream.

More popular toppings include jalapenos, corn, pico de gallo, avocado, black beans, onions, and black olives.
If you like, you can serve the taco salad in a store-bought tortilla bowl.

Cook the beef, then stir in the beans, dressing, and seasoning.

Place crushed chips in a bowl, then top with lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes.

Mix in the meat mixture.

Finish the taco salad bowls with sour cream and salsa.
