Easy Taco Salad to Feed a Crowd – Ultimate Recipe Swap
Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 1, 2010 @ 7:15 pm In Main Dishes,Recipes,Salads,URS | 16 Comments
Labor Day is the ideal time to gather a crowd for one last summer hurrah. Host a BBQ or a pool party and just enjoy these last few carefree days of summer.
It’s not a great party, though, without some great eats. And feeding a crowd can be a huge undertaking. One of my favorite meals to serve to large groups is the Taco Salad.
Yeah, yeah, I know, real men don’t eat salad. But they will if you load it up with all these macho taco fixings. Lay out a DIY bar with a variety of toppings like spicy pico de gallo  and hearty proteins like seasoned taco meat , shredded beef or chicken, and cooked pinto beans . Yum!
And yes, it’s okay if some of the males in your midst don’t add lettuce. Then you call it, Not Soggy Nachos .
Lay out bowls of the following and let everyone assemble his own taco salad.
Lots of torn lettuce
Seasoned Taco Meat 
Shredded Beef 
Cooked Pintos 
Pico de Gallo 
Homemade Salsa  (using canned tomatoes)
Avocado slices, avocado salsa , or guacamole 
Sliced black olives
