More About This Recipe
For everyone who’s ever wanted to just eat dip for dinner.
Add some flair to your dinner tonight by making this Mexican Layer Salad. The layers of brightly colored vegetables, cheese, beans and meat, turn this ordinary meal into a fiesta. So, let’s get the party started.
First, make your taco meat. That’s easy enough.
While the beef is simmering in that yummy Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, chop, tear, shred, and slice all the remaining salad ingredients.
Then begin layering about two thirds of the lettuce, and all the black olives and tomatoes.
Next, just to add a nice pop of color, layer the rest of the lettuce then top that with your peppers and black beans. If you want, you can heat the black beans before adding them in the salad.
Toss on the cheese and arrange the tortilla chips around the top edge of your trifle bowl, just to make the dish extra pretty.
Finally, top with the hot taco meat. Add a dollop of sour cream and some tomato slices as garnish, if you’d like, then serve with the remaining sour cream.
Now sit back and enjoy your fiesta (for dinner).
