Ingredients

Taco Salads
125ml soured cream
100g Old El Paso™ Thick 'N' Chunky Salsa
1 pack Old El Paso™ Garlic & Paprika Seasoning Mix for Tacos
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
450g beef mince
150ml water
225g mixed shredded salad leaves (such as romaine and iceberg)
1 tin (425g) Old El Paso™ Black Beans, drained and rinsed
100g Double Gloucester cheese, grated
2 large tomatoes, halved, deseeded and chopped
To Serve
Tortilla chips

Instructions

1. Mix the soured cream, salsa and 2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning mix in a small bowl. Cover and chill in the refrigerator whist making the salad.
2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the mince and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring all the time until browned all over. Stir in the rest of the taco seasoning mix and water and cook for a further10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beef is cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated.
3. Divide the lettuce between 6 serving plates. Top each with some of the beef mixture, black beans, grated cheese and diced tomato. Serve with the soured cream dressing and with tortilla chips on the side.

Tips

  • If you love dressing on every bite, toss all the salad ingredients together in a big bowl--then toss with the dressing.
  • Replace the beef mince with vegetarian mince for a meat-free version.
