  • 1 medium tomato, seeded, chopped
  • 1 cup lettuce, shredded
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large skillet add ground beef and cook until no longer pink;about 7 minutes. Drain fat if there is any. Add taco seasoning and water. Cook until the water is evaporated. Turn heat off and stir in salsa.
  3. In a baking dish (9 x 10), add broken tortilla chips (enough to cover the bottom of the baking dish). Top with ground beef mixture. Top with cheese. Bake in oven for 20 - 25 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
  4. Top with lettuce and tomatoes. Note: If you plan on having left overs, omit the lettuce and place the lettuce on your plate and top with beef and chips if desired.
  5. Serve with sour cream and/or hot sauce.
Notes
This can also be served with black olives, avocado, and hot sauce.
