Seasoned Ground Beef

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup your favorite salsa, plus more as neded
  • 1/2 cup water, plus more as needed


  • 1 head romaine lettuce (large)
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1 cup sweet corn (canned)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onions (small dice)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • Tortilla strips or chips
  • Sour cream for topping
  • Cilantro for topping
  • Salsa for topping
  • Chipotle Ranch Dressing


  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, add beef and let it sear about 3-4 minutes. Tip: break it up in chunks for better searing. Then, break up the meat and continue cooking until cooked through, stirring as needed. Drain excess fat.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add the taco seasoning to the beef and stir until thoroughly mixed with the meat. Add water and simmer until the liquid is reduced. Then stir 1/4 to 1/2 cup salsa and reduce. The beef should be nicely moist - if too wet, keep cooking to reduce, and if too dry, add more salsa.
  • Assemble the salad: layer lettuce on salad bowls, then add some halved cherry tomatoes, corn, diced onions, prepared beef, cheese, tortilla chips or strips, cheese, and avocado.
  • Serve with some sour cream, cilantro for garnish. Drizzle chipotle ranch dressing to taste. Enjoy!
