Easy Peasy Taco Salad!

Posted by Picasa

So I want to preface this recipe by saying that I do a lot of recipes that you can use things from your 3 month  and/or year supply. We all have different things in our supplys but I thought I would give you a list of some of the basics in mine.

Canned chicken and beef
Canned Veggies~ corn, green beans
Ranch Style beans
El pato
Canned tomatos
canned olives
diced green chiles

That is just a couple. I will do a future post on how I SLOWLY got my 3 month supply. It is overwhelming but I think I can simplify. Anyway, Back to taco salad. As I said I use some stuff so that I can rotate but I use fresh when I can!

What you need:
1 lb. of Lean Hamburger (or shredded beef from 3 month supply)
1 can of corn, drained
2 cans Ranch Style Beans
1 can sliced olives
Shredded cheese
Tortilla Chips
Salsa~recipe below

Brown Hamburger, add the corn, beans, olives. Cook until all is warm.  My boys like a big helping of the meat mix with lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, and salsa and then scoop up with the chips. I like to make a salad with the lettuce and tomato and onion then put some of the bean and meat mix on top! You can also put sour cream. I like to mix salsa with Ranch! I have also made my salsa recipe so that you can use your supply items as well. If needed I use fresh when I can!

Rachel's Salsa

1 Large can whole peeled tomatos
1 small can yellow el pato
1/2 Large Bell Pepper~ small can diced green chiles if  using supply
1 Large Anaheim pepper~small can jalapenos if using supply
1/2 large onion~dried onion if using supply
6~green onions
1 large cut off the top of a cilantro bunch (to taste)~i have dried cilantro for supply
Stevia or sugar
garlic powder

cut up the veggies and put in blender. Use 1/2-3/4 the can of el pato. The more the spicier it will be. Add the can of tomatos. Then do 2-3 shakes of garlic powder, 2 shakes stevia or a heaping spoonful of sugar! Salt and pepper to taste. I put enough pepper to cover the top! Then blend to desired thickness! WARNING! Its Goood!
