Taco Salad

One of our favorite quick and easy dinners to prepare is taco salad. When we went on our low carb diet, we started eating lots of salads, I don't know why we never had this one before. We used to have it without the corn chips when we were more strict about it.

My friend Candice recently decided to give the low carb lifestyle a try. I went grocery shopping with her and told her to get stuff to make taco salad. I don't really use a recipe, but I pretty much start by frying up diced onion in olive oil, then I add the garlic, then the beef, then all the spices. And garnish with everything else. This is what I put in mine:

For the meat: 1 small onion, ground beef, minced garlic, salt and pepper, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and oregano. Serve it on top of chopped romaine lettuce, then add black beans, salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese, guacamole and tortilla chips. You should try it!
