  • 1 pound ground beef
    1/2 clove garlic, crushed
    1 4-ounce can chopped, mild green chilies
    1 16-ounce canned tomatoes, undrained
    1 teaspon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 head of iceberg lettuce, torn bite-sized
    1 cup (4 ounces) grated Cheddar cheese
    6 ounces tortilla chips, crushed
    1/2 cup chopped green onion

    Brown meat with garlic, drain. Add chilies, canned tomatoes, salt and pepper; mix well. Cook over low heat, covered, about 30 minutes.

    Just before serving, arrange lettuce, cheese, chips, green onion, and olives in a salad bowl. Add meat mixture, toss lightly. Garnish with tomato. Serve immediately with salsa and guacamole.

  • One that we like is to layer the following in individual bowls/plates.......tortilla chip pieces, warm kidney beans, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, black olives, and a dollop of sour cream. We love tomatoes and that is why we have them along with the salsa.

  • I keep it simple. I pan fry some chicken (canned chicken breast works too), layer some shredded lettuce, the chicken, shredded cheese, fresh salsa, and a dollop of sour cream. Sometimes I throw some black beans on there too.

    1 pound ground beef
    Medium bottle of Ranch dressing

    Mix all together and done.
