The crunch of tortilla chips, crisp lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and more add amazing flavor and color to the salad. Garnish with sour cream and salsa!

Preparation Time10 min


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/2 head lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 bag tortilla chips, broken into medium size pieces

  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • sour cream and salsa for garnish, if desired

This is a delicious recipe. It is so simple, and yet really good! We added all of the ingredients on top of the tortilla chips. We didn't break them up. So this was sort of like a big batch of Texas Salad Nachos? We topped with salsa, sour cream, and some chives. It makes a big batch. We set this out for movie night, and we all snacked on the nachos throughout the night! Makes a great family night snack!

Gosh, I wondered what a texas salad was but I don't think this is a salad but then why must a salad consist of the usual raw vegetables? It is just what we are used to! This dish certainly would go much further than a salad. It does sound delicious and I would like to try it to see what the tortilla chips taste like in it.
