This recipe was Awesome! See how amazing it looks:
Bethany said, "Mom, make this again! I actually like it!!" :)
Chris said (after his fourth helping), "Mom, is this cheap? Then you should make it a lot!"
Most everyone agreed. (You really don't expect any recipe to have unanimous approval, do you??)
This would be perfect to take to a church covered dish dinner or to serve at a Super Bowl party or to make for the NCAA basketball championship! It is also great for a simple weeknight supper.
Here is the recipe:
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup taco seasoning
1 can refried beans (optional)
2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
2 TBSP finley chopped red onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp lemon juice
4 cups shredded lettuce
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
5 green onions, chopped
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 cup mild salsa
2 cups sour cream
In a small skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in water and taco seasoning. Cook and stir for two minutes. Stir in one can of refried beans (optional) and heat thoroughly. Let cool slightly while you assemble remaining ingredients.
In a small bowl, mash avocados with onion, garlic, and lemon juice (or use prepared guacamole).
In a 3-quart trifle dish (or glass bowl) layer in this order:
ground beef mixture
sliced black olives
chopped green onions
grated cheddar cheese
Repeat all layers, ending with sour cream. You may want to save out a few green onions and black olives for a garnish.
Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
Doesn't that sound easy? Please let me know if you try this! I hope you will get Rave Reviews, as I did!
