FARMER'S LAYERED TACO SALAD

This is an old recipe from an Indiana Farm Bureau, Inc. newsletter.

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pkt (1.25-oz) taco seasoning mix
1 can (15-oz) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 can ripe olives, drained and chopped
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups crushed corn chips
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
Sour cream, optional
Salsa, optional

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the onion. Drain mixture well. Sprinkle the taco seasoning mix over the meat and onion mixture. Stir in the kidney beans and the tomato sauce. Cook mixture over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

To assemble: In a large bowl make layers of lettuce, corn chips, meat mixture, ripe olives, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and top with sour cream, if desired. Top with or serve with your favorite salsa, if desired.
