Mom's Taco Salad

courtesy of my mom who made this growing up all the time... now my husband demands it

1 lb ground beef
1 med onion

sliced black olives
1 bunch cilantro
1 avocado

"Pink Sauce"
Cheap bottled Salsa
Sour Cream
1 tsp Cumin (to taste)

shredded cheese (your fav. Mexican cheese)
tortilla chips

In the mean time, wash and chop lettuce, cilantro & chop avocado
To Lettuce add meat, kidney beans, black olives, cilantro, avocados and cheese

Sauce "Pink Sauce" (as we call it in our family)
- Mix 1 cup salsa with 1/2 C sour cream
Add Cumin to taste
Mix into whole salad, or let people top it themselves

Top salad with "pink sauce" and chips

It's really one of our favorite staple meals. One of the only salads the Mr. will consider as his main dish... you know how they are about soup or salad for dinner!
