This is a simple and yummy Taco Salad recipe!

You can make the meat and salad mixtures separately and then toss together with chips right before potluck time!  Thank you to Joyce for sharing this recipe!


1 lb. hamburger

Chili powder



Tomatoes, chopped

Lettuce, chopped to bite size

Sliced olives

Cheddar cheese, grated

1 can kidney beans, drained

Brown hamburger and drain excess fat.  Add tomato sauce or ketchup (enough to keep mixture a thick consistency) and simmer 10 minutes.  Add olives, kidney beans, and spices.  Simmer again until good and warm.
