A couple days ago, Susan on My Lot fixed a nice, layered taco salad for their dinner. After drooling over her photo, I thought about getting the ingredients to fix one, also. Yesterday, Jay and I drove down to our daughter's home, for a belated Father's Day gathering. One of the side dishes Mari Lyn served, was a taco salad! I made up my mind, to fix a layered taco salad for our supper this evening It looks like quite a mess, after we dug into it! Thank you Susan, for this great idea

You can never go wrong with Mexican or Tex-Mex inspired ingredients in my opinion.

Jay's favorite cuisine is Mexican food, he lived in San Antonio for seven years.

@NJChicaa Italian is my favorite, also:) But, I can't have regular macaroni or spaghetti noodles.

Those red things are chunks of ripe tomatoes and some of it is salsa, also.

@caopaopao We always add lots of fresh tomato chunks, in a taco salad.

I always wondered how Americans and even Europeans could only have just salad for a meal. We can't survive here with just that. Salad is just a mere appetiser (and depending on the salad, most Filipnos eat it as dessert), then we have soup, then the main course which includes rice and so many side dishes.

This salad has a whole can of black beans, a pound of ground venison burger(taco seasoned), about 1/2 pound of shredded cheese, and a whole can of corn within its layers. So, it is quite filling. We also had taco chips on the side. Jay always enjoys a sweet dessert afterwards.

@kobesbuddy Yeah I know, but for most Filipinos, nothing can fill their stomach when there's no rice.

It has a lot of ingredients, that I didn't have. So I went to WalMart and bought a few thing to make it.

Good idea! Taco salads look yummy though i have never had one. But am going to look up a recipe as I have two packets of taco seasoning! Is the photo your daughter's or the one you made? Whoever made it, it looks yummy!

The photo is one that I made. Anything that goes into a taco, is layered in a cake pan. Then, nacho chips are broken up on top. That's it:) The meat used is just cooked ground beef, with 1/2 c. water and 1 taco seasoning packet. I think it has to simmer together for five minutes. It's so darn easy, we like ours with a drained can of corn and 1can of black beans, rinsed off.

@kobesbuddy Can one put sour cream in it? If yes, did you use it in your recipe? i love the sour cream part of tacos. It does sound easy, and i could probably try it on my own without Jamie helping me to make it! She is showing me how to make pancakes and french toast tomorrow! do you ever make those for Jay? you describing the cooking process made me hungry again!

@Marty1 We keep the sour cream on the table, for on top. This salad wouldn't last for very long, it would spoil with sour cream mixed in.

Jay was so pleased, he dug right in:) I only used about five-six taco chips broken on top. With my carb counting, it worked out just fine!

Looks delicious! I'm not accustomed to venison, so I'll just stick with hamburger.

We mix ground venison with beef, it tastes similar but lower in fat content.
