“People know me for my love of food, but I have so much more I want to share, ... Our show's going to be all about taking a bigger bite out of life. I want people to see themselves in this show because life is full of messes and successes, and getting there is half the fun.” Rachael Ray


John's Favorite Taco Salad

"Envision a thick taco salad brimming with chopped tomatoes, ground beef or turkey, lettuce, and lots of shredded cheese. You'll have a pretty good idea of what this nifty salad will be like. Except this one you top with a Catalina dressing. Refrigerate a couple of hours and enjoy."

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco
    seasoning mix, added dry
  • 2 lb. cans tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/3 cup Catalina Dressing
  • 2 cans green chilies, chopped
  • 1 head of lettuce, shredded (iceberg) I use
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 12 oz., shredded cheese, Monterey Jack or Cheddar
  • one bunch green onions with tops, sliced
  • 1 (8 oz) carton sour cream
  • 1 (16 oz) can beans, drained (Black or kidney beans)
  • 1 small can black sliced olives, drained
  • 1 bag tortilla chips (16 oz) whatever kind you prefer....

Directions:

Brown ground beef or turkey over medium heat, drain. Add taco seasoning and undrained tomatoes with beef and simmer for an additional 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine lettuce, onions, chilies, cheese, beef or turkey, beans, ripe fresh tomatoes. Add enough dressing to coat, mix well and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

To serve place mixture in individual bowls and add individually the sour cream and olives and crushed tortilla chips. ENJOY!
