Taco Salad

Taco Salad
1 pound grass fed ground beef
Taco Seasoning (see recipe below)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
Lettuce, torn into small pieces
Tomatoes, diced
Sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Tacos (I used leftover tacos that I had in the cabinet, warmed them in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes)
Sour cream
Use about 2 tablespoons of seasoning per 1 pound of ground beef.  Brown ground beef and then add seasoning and about 1/2 cup of water.  Cook until seasoning is absorbed.  Add a couple of spoonfuls of black beans to the pan of meat.  This will help to warm them up.  Break tacos in half and place on a plate, I used 2 tacos per plate.  Add lettuce and arugula.  Place a couple of spoonfuls of taco meat, add cheese, diced tomatoes.  Top with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.  I also broke up another taco into small pieces and sprinkled on top of the salad.

Taco Seasoning
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground pepper

There is enough seasoning for 2 different meals.
