This has been a usual in my house since I was little. Although it is always deemed a summer only dish. It is quick and easy and totally an "I want seconds" kind of meal.
1/2 pound ground beef or turkey breast
1 can pinto beans, drained
cheddar cheese, shredded
tortilla chips, crushed
Brown meat and add beans. Mix in your favorite salsa to taste. Mix up your veggies, the ones I listed are a must have but you can use anything you like. We usually just grab whatever we have in our garden. Put beans and meat mixture in the bottom of individual bowls. Top with salad, cheese, and crushed tortilla chips. Add Catalina dressing to taste. The dressing is the key in this salad, it gives it the right flavor.
