Quick and Simple Taco Salad Recipe

My boys love eating tacos and if it were up to them we'd have tacos once a week.  I am not a huge fan of tacos, but I have started eating a giant bowl of taco salad anytime we have tacos.

I figure at least I can make all the same foods and this way I feel like I'm eating just a bit healthier and the salad fills me up for the rest of the night.

We always have a HUGE Tupperware bowl of tossed salad made.  I stuff our salad with lots of vegetables; spinach, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, celery, cucumber, broccoli, mushrooms, and even cauliflower.

To make my taco salad, I take a huge bowl of salad and sprinkle on some shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

Add some salsa and/or ranch dressing.

Add a scoop of taco meat.

And crumble up one hard taco shell or crisp up a soft shell in the oven that has been sprayed with a bit of oil and cut it into bite size pieces.

It's also a great way to use up any leftover taco meat and shells.
