Quick and Simple Taco Salad Recipe

Today I though I'd re-share one of my favorite simple summer meals.  I've updated the post with new photos and hope you enjoy!

My boys love eating tacos and if it were up to them we'd have tacos once a week.  I am not a huge fan of tacos, but I have started eating a giant bowl of taco salad anytime we have tacos.

I figure at least I can make all the same foods and this way I feel like I'm eating just a bit healthier and the salad fills me up for the rest of the night.

We always have a HUGE Tupperware bowl of tossed salad made.  I stuff our salad with lots of vegetables; spinach, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, celery, cucumber, broccoli, mushrooms, and even cauliflower.

To make my taco salad, I take a huge bowl of salad and sprinkle on some shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

Add some salsa and/or ranch dressing.

Add a scoop of taco meat.

And crumble up one hard taco shell or crisp up a soft shell in the oven that has been sprayed with a bit of oil and cut it into bite size pieces.

It's also a great way to use up any leftover taco meat and shells.
