Taco Salad with Spicy Ranch

Start by making the spicy ranch for your salad. I did it the easy way and used a ranch packet:
So you need one of these packets
1 cup mayo
1 cup milk (we use lactose free milk, as my hubby is lactose intolerant)
Tapatio, a couple of dashes for an extra kick of spicy

Add mayo to a bowl

stir everything together really well

and chill in fridge while you prep everything for the salad.

So you will need: 2 pounds Extra Lean Ground Beef, 85% Lean (I didn’t get 2 pounds exactly, almost 2 pounds though)

you will also need taco seasoning, homemade is always better I used this recipe
about 1/4 cup

Grab a large skillet or a cast iron skillet. I used my cast iron skillet. Turn Pan to Medium high heat and add beef to pan

break the meat up

then add taco seasoning to beef

Sprinkle all over the meat

Cook meat until its completely browned all the way through. Once the meat is cooked all the way through, turn down to low to keep meat warm until you are ready to make your salad.

while the meat is cooking and browning you can prep the rest of the salad. You will need:
Green leaf lettuce
cilantro, washed and chopped up
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
2 avocado, chopped
green onion, chopped
Extra sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated/shredded

Start by grating/shredding the cheese

chop everything up and place in different bowls. You will also need tortilla chips, salsa and grab the dressing you made earlier and put everything out to make your salad

so to make my salad I placed tortilla chips on a plate and then topped it with the desired amount of beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese, onion, cilantro, avocado, salsa, and dressing
