Quick Taco Salad

I really need to get on the ball with this blog.
That being said, I'm going to post some recipes that have gotten me through this week.
One is my HUGE BOWL of Taco Salad for 6.
1 1/2 lbs of ground beef
1 large onion minced
1 bag of shredded cabbage
1 cup frozen corn
chopped bell pepper
taco seasoning mix to taste
salt to taste
chopped scallions
shredded cheddar and jack cheese
Brown ground beef, drain fat, add onions, peppers, frozen corn and cabbage and taco seasoning mix
and cook until cabbage is just wilted.
Place in a large shallow bowl.
Add a layer of salsa
Add a layer of cheese,
top with green scallions...
The cabbage stretches the meat, and gives it all a great crunch.
Shredded cabbage is almost always used in Mexico for tacos instead of lettuce.
It's much more nutritious and is cheaper than lettuce, and required less
pesticide when growing.
