Yummy Taco Salad

  • 1 chicken breast or 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • 1 T chipotle chili pepper (because it's better)
  • 1/2 can black beans
  • lettuce (i prefer the lazy kind)
  • tomatoes (i love the strawberry ones)
  • avacado
  • tortilla chips (i use the lime and sea salt spoon ones)
  • catalina dressing
  • antoinette's saltspring or chilli dip
  1. Heat grapeseed oil in large saute pan. Cook meat until no longer pink or until browned... depending on your choice of meat. Add garlic, cumin and chili pepper, I never measure... I taste test, when it tastes yummy then it's ready! If it looks too dry, add a bit of water to coat the meat better.
  2. Drain black beans and add them to the meat. Cook a bit longer. I usually set the burner to low and then go about preparing the rest.
  3. Wash and tear lettuce, chop tomatoes, slice avacado, toss to combine.
  4. Add meat mixture to veggies and top with crushed tortilla chips.
  5. Mix about a 1/4 c of catalina dressing with some yummy antoinette's and toss with salad!

I guess you can add cheese to it, I never do... sometimes I add onions

Hurrah for blogging, even sporadically.
