Favorite Summer Recipes: Taco Salad

When it is 100 + degrees outside, who wants to heat up the house even more by cooking? Even if you do cook a large hot meal, no one feels like eating it. So, in the summer we (and probably most people) cook a little lighter. I made this Taco Salad Sunday night and it was a big hit.

1 lb ground beef browned
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1 bag shredded lettuce
1 bag shredded cheese
Tortilla Chips
Salsa

After browning ground beef in a skillet, pour off the fat and add corn and beans. Cook about 5 minutes until warm. Pour into a bowl over shredded lettuce. Crumble Tortilla Chips add them to your salad. Top with shredded cheese and salsa to taste. Toss and serve. Makes about 8 servings.
