taco salad party

another fun choice for entertaining has to be taco salads made to order.  each guest is able to make their own with ingredients provided for them buffet style.  for parties where some prefer beef, others prefer grilled chicken, and still others may be vegetarian; everyone can choose their own protein or simply the vegetables and condiments.

some individuals may choose to season their chicken or meat, and i have found this seasoning to be quite tasty.  seasoned meat is not required for this salad, just an option. if used, add to the meat while cooking or grilling on the stove top.

for these salads, i used round tortilla shells, chopped lettuce, ground beef, cooked corn, chopped red tomatoes, chopped black olives, chopped green onion, shredded cheddar cheese, or a selection of shredded cheeses, salsa, sour cream, and a red based salad dressing.  store bought honey french dressing or Catalina dressing is very tasty on this salad.

 

using similar serving bowls adds to the festive nature of the presentation.  these star bowls were purchased online at crate and barrel several years ago and are not available there today.
