Taco Bowls with Guac-a-Salsa Salad
Recipe By :Rachael Ray
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Beef-Veal
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 sack corn tortilla chips -- any brand or color (
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil -- divided
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 jalapeno peppers -- seeded and finely ch
2 medium onions -- chopped
3 cloves garlic -- chopped (3 to 4)
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
Coarse salt and black pepper
1 cup water
2 firm Haas avocados
3 plum tomatoes -- seeded and chopped
1 Handful cilantro leaves -- chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 sacks -- 10 ounces, 2 cups ea
Lightly crush the chips by popping open the bag and giving the chips a few light whacks with a frying pan - careful that they don't fly out of the sack! Hold the bag loosely at the top with 1 hand while you crush the chips with the other.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil - 2 turns of the pan. Add the beef to the skillet, brown and crumble it, 5 minutes. To the browned meat, add half the jalapeno peppers, 3/4 of the chopped onions and all of the garlic. Season the meat with cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook together 5 minutes more, then add the water and reduce heat to low. Adjust salt, to taste.
Halve and separate the avocados. Remove pit with a spoon. With the skin in tact, using a small knife, dice the avocado while still in the skin. Scoop out the diced flesh and place in a bowl. Combine tomatoes, remaining onions, jalapenos, and cilantro gently with avocado and dress the salad with the juice of 1 lemon, extra-virgin olive oil, and salt, to your taste.
Layer a 1 or 2 handfuls of chips in soup or chili bowls and top with a handful of cheese. Fill bowls with taco meat and top with more cheese, then mound up some salad on top and serve.

NOTES : I baked up a couple flour tortilla salad bowls to serve this in and cut back on the chips.

This recipe does not have green onions or olives, but you can add them to the recipe, if you choose.

Enchilada Casserole

2 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained
2 14 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 cup water
2 tablespoon chili powder
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 packages 6 corn tortillas (20)

Combine beef, tomatoes, water, chili powder, green pepper, and onion in large sauce pan. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Line a 13x9x2 pan with a third of the tortillas. Top with third of meat sauce and third of the cheese. Repeat layers, reserving the remaining third of the cheese. Bake covered in a 350 oven for 45 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of casserole.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
