Chopped Mexican Salad


I am obsessed with Mexican food.  Seriously want to eat it everyday.  Lately Matt and I have gotten into chopped salads.  For awhile we were making our Greek chopped salad once a week with Shrimp and decided to switch it up with this salad.  We chop everything up and then toss in in a big bowl.  After it is tossed we add ground beef to the top.  Honestly this salad is amaze without the ground beef, but you know my man needs meat so we add meat.  We add salsa to our bowls and mix before serving and use that as our dressing, but you could use any dressing you like.  We gobble this salad up once a week and best part it is not too bad for you.  It is filled with so many veggies and protein that are healthy.
 Enjoy!

This makes enough for about 4 people
- 1 Head Romaine Chopped
- 1 tomato diced
- 2 jalapenos diced
- 2 scallions sliced
- 1 avocado diced
- 2 ears of cooked corn shucked
- 1 can pinto beans drained and rinsed
- 1 avocado diced
- Crumbled Cotija Cheese (Mexican Cheese)
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 packet taco seasoning (we use homemade)
- salsa
- sour cream

Place finely chopped lettuce in bowl and top with next 7 ingredients.   Toss together.   Cook ground beef, drain and add taco seasoning + water.  Serve salad in bowl mixed with salsa and topped with ground beef and sour cream.

This looks amazing. I love chopped salads. We always eat mexican food at Santi's, but I really do think homemade mexican food is so much better. Will have to try this!
