This was on an old newspaper clipping in my mother's recipe box. I have no idea where she got it. But it is good and easy, as the name states.

1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 envelope (1 1/4 oz) taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
1 pkg (12 oz) tortilla chips
1/2 head lettuce, shredded
2 med tomatoes, chopped
1 can (2 1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (about 4 oz)
2/3 cup sour cream

Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a 10-inch skillet until beef is light brown, drain well. Stir in seasoning mix and water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Spoon beef mixture onto the chips. Top with the remaining ingredients.

Yield 6 servings

I remember in the late 70's, it had to be between 78 and 79, that my stepmother started making Taco Salad and she would use Doritos. Oh yeah we couldn't wait for taco salad nights. Just thought I would share. lol Take Care :)
