I found this on a really neat on www.FamilyFreshMeals.com and wanted to share it with you!


1 pound ground beef  (or vegetarian crumble)

3/4 cup water
1/4 cup salsa
1 envelope taco seasoning 
4-6 cups tortilla chips
4  cups shredded lettuce
1/2 cup  pitted large olives, sliced lengthwise
2 cups  shredded cheddar cheese
2-3 cups cherry tomatoes

DirectionsEasy Taco Salad Flag - Steps
1. In a large skillet, cook beef over a medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain off any extra grease. Next,  stir in the water, salsa  and taco seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed. 

2. Place chips in a 13-in. x 9-in. dish.  Next spread beef evenly over the top of chips.

3. Cover beef  with a layer of lettuce.

4. Arrange olive slices together in the upper left corner to form stars. For the  stripes, alternate tomatoes and cheese.  I added a couple extra chips to the side of the dish for some extra crunch.

NOTE: If you are making this several hours in advance, I would skip placing the chips at the bottom of the taco salad and just serve them on the side.  

Optional: I also like to drizzle a little bit of Italian dressing over the individual servings 🙂
