I tried to healthy-up my supper. I microwaved a baked potato and sauteed spinach to eat along with the taco salad. And ate it on a monkey plate. The rest of the family did not want to join me in healthying-up their meal :)
- Brown 1-2 pounds of beef in a skillet. Add taco seasoning with water as directed. One of these months we will perfect our own taco seasoning
- Crunch mission chips onto a plate. Top with beef
- Add tomatoes, black olives, canned diced chilies, diced onions, diced tomatoes, diced green pepper
- Top with sour cream, cheddar/taco cheese, salsa

Any ideas how to make the taco salad healthier? Cheaper?
For the spinach, I sauteed onions in tarragon vinegar. Added defrosted frozen spinach (catch that?). Sautee until cooked through. I'm trying to up my calcium intake and I think that regular spinach will help.
