Did You Know?...
This recipe uses prepared taco seasoning mix. If you prefer to season the beef using your own seasoning mix, that's fine.
You can use all cheddar cheese for this recipe, but the mix of cheddar and Monterey Jack, both cheeses that have a lot of taste, is just perfect to me.
If you want to up the heat level, add some chopped jalapeno peppers and more hot sauce to the meat mixture.
Taco salad recipes are terrific to serve a group and great party pleasers.
