Taco Salad

I love love love salad during the summer.  There are so many topping options to put on, plus it can be a light and simple meal. There is nothing better then having fresh fruits & vegetables.  Taco salad can be made a few different ways.  Really, you make it to fit the cravings. I have done taco salad with yummy Mango Salsa on it ... Oh my delicious.

Taco Salad
1 lb hamburger
1 envelop taco seasoning {if you aren't using a mango salsa}
1 head lettuce
1 can beans of choice ~ pinto, black, kidney, red, etc. 
1 can corn {or 2 cups frozen corn or 3 - 4 ears of corn cooked & shaved off ear}
1 can sliced olives
taco bowls 
Basically any toppings that you want. 

Topping ideas:
sour cream 
salsa of choice

Brown hamburger & drain grease.  Add in taco seasoning is using. Chop head of lettuce and add desired amount into taco bowl.  Then add in meat.  After hamburger is added in, top with the desired amount of topping choices. 
*If you aren't using taco bowls, you can also crush up Frito chips {or leave them whole} and add them to the salad.  Gives a nice touch.
