1-3 cloves garlic
1 head of lettuce - your choice
1-2 green onion
1-2 med size tomatoes

Shredded cheese (1/5 - 1 cup)
Choice of either Catalina or Ranch dressing

jalapeņo peppers and Franks Hot Sauce (both optional)

Fry ground beef in large frying pan.
Press 1-3 cloves of fresh garlic.
Dice onions.
Once beef cooked drain any fat.
Add in a 1/2 cup water and 1 package of taco seasoning.
For a little spice, add either jalapeņo peppers or Frank's red hot sauce (to taste).
Let the beef mixture simmer until the liquid is at a thicker consistency. Remove from heat.
Break apart either the lettuce.
Chop green onion, tomatoes, celery, carrots and coloured peppers. Add your favourite shredded cheese and toss all together in a large serving bowl with the lettuce.
Add the meat (doesn't have to be completely cool) to the lettuce/veggie/cheese mixture.
Add either nacho chips or for a great alternative in texture and flavour use regular corn chips.
Drizzle either Catalina or Ranch dressing over and toss to spread evenly through the salad.
