[Makeshift] Taco Salad

I decided it was a taco night.

Several problems:

– No tomatoes

– No salsa

– No Tapatio

– No Taco Seasoning mix, or cumin (I like my taco meat spicy, I kind of felt like I needed one or the other)

– Only two tortillas (and didn’t feel like making any)

I decided to brave it anyway, and pulled some ground chuck out of the freezer.  I’ve gotten some good sales on ground chuck lately.

First, this is what I put in my ground beef while it was frying:

– 1/2 onion, chopped

– Salt & pepper

– Paprika

– Dried parsley

– Crushed red pepper

– Granulated garlic

– Beef bouillon

– Water & flour, shaken together to prevent lumps – probably about 1/3 cup water and 2 tablespoons flour

Of course, I also drained the excess grease before I added the flour and water.  I have to say that the meat was really delicious.  Bogdan used the two tortillas we had, and I had my “tacos” on my plate , thus “taco salad.”

I used:

– Tortilla chips

– Cheddar cheese, shredded

– Lettuce (unfortunately, the only kind I had was that prepared kind with the incredibly fragrant purple cabbage and carrots)

– Sour cream

It was good, but I missed the tomatoes and hot sauce. 🙂 I would recommend the meat spices!
