Beef Filling

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 cup bottled fire roasted salsa
  • 1.25 lBs lean ground beef
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro

For Salad

  • 1 cup Shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 5 oz. tortilla chips, slightly crumbled
  • 1 head romaine lettuce or iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion (optional)
  • 5 tbsp Sour cream or Mexican crema (optional)
  • 1 large avocado, diced (optional)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced (or 1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes)
  1. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Crumble in beef in chunks. Let sear until browned on bottom, about 3 minutes then turn an d break up beef and continue to cook until cooked through.

  3. Drain fat from beef then stir in salsa, chili powder and cumin.

  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste and heat through, about 1 minute.

  5. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

  6. Top with chips, beef mixture, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and red onion if using.

  7. Layer lettuce among individual plates.Serve immediately.


*If you used a thicker salsa you may want to add a splash of chicken broth or water to thin slightly. If you used a watery salsa you can let it simmer for a few minutes to reduce.

Time Saving Tips:

To make the most of your time and to get dinner on the table quickly I like to prep toppings while ground beef is browning.

You could even use pico de gallo and guacamole from the produce section of the grocery store in place of diced tomatoes and avocados to save prep time.

You can also buy a large bag of pre-cut romaine lettuce.
