Hot Taco Salad

It’s hard to believe that I have another Mexican dish for you all (NOT!).  This one is a salad, more specifically a hot taco salad.  This recipe makes enough for 2 meals.  This way you can eat one now and freeze the rest for another night when you need a meal in a jiffy.

This hot taco salad is topped with a hot (temperature wise, not spice wise) and saucy ground beef mixture.  I kept the spice level to a minimum but you can always adjust it by the kind of tomatoes, taco seasoning, and taco sauce you use.   I also kept the toppings to a minimum too, but you can always add anything else you enjoy on a taco salad.  Taco salad is always one way that I can always get the whole family to eat salad for dinner.
