Instructions
  1. Cook the ground beef over medium high heat. When browned add the seasoning package and 1 tsp vinegar. Cook another 5 minutes. Drain off any excess fat/liquid and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl layer the lettuce, then the ground beef, then scatter the other toppings over the top.
  3. To make the fried tortilla strips for garnish, cut an 8″ tortilla into 1/4 ” strips, Halve the long ones. Put oil in the bottom of a small skillet and heat it over medium high heat. There should be enough oil to just cover the tortilla strips. Test a strip- it should sizzle when you drop it in the oil. When the oil is hot add the strips and cook until they are golden brown – about 3 minutes. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle chili powder over the hot strips.
  4. Serve with the salsa/sour cream dressing on the side.
Recipe Notes

Leftovers of this salad don’t work very well once the meat is mixed in with the salad. You can’t heat the meat without heating the lettuce. So – try to make just as much as you will use.
