Taco Salad

I supposed to post this yesterday. But I got caught up biking! It was really nice out yesterday. And it’s officially spring! Yay! Yesterday is 83° F. We went to the store to look some palm trees. I want to start planting. But there’s really a few selection of plants and flowers. I saw a lot of daffodils and tulips.  Here is some pictures I took yesterday!

Yesterday for dinner I made some Taco salad. The taco salad is a Mexican inspired dish, with many variationsThe salad is often served as a fried flour tortilla shell stuffed with shredded iceberg lettuce and topped with diced tomatoes, shredded Cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. The salad is topped with taco meat (ground beef) or seasoned shredded chicken. The salad may also have a base of refried beans on the shell before the lettuce is added.

Variations include a similar salad served without the tortilla base and a “bowl” of Spanish rice and refried beans dressed out with similar ingredients. The taco salad also takes a twist in many American homes. Instead of using a tortilla or a bowl of Spanish rice as a base, the meal is based on top of crushed tortilla chips, making the dish very similar to the Mexican dish of nachos, just with added lettuce . Taco Salad comes together easily. This is my version of the Taco salad. I think I do this backwards.
