1 cup of cilantro, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of 1 lime
2 cups plain yogurt
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning (storebought or homemade)
8" tortillas (flour or corn)
Diced green chilies
Guacamole (I left this out since the BF hates it)
Whisk together the cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, yogurt, salt and sugar.
Brown the ground beef and drain off the excess fat. Season with the taco seasoning.
Place the tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 1 minute in a 425-degree oven. Place atop upturned, oven-safe bowls, pinching/fluting the edges, and bake for 7-8 minutes to create a taco shell.
*You can skip this step and buy premade taco shells, or simply serve the salad atop tortilla or corn chips.*
Place the ground beef & Mexican rice in the taco shell; top with black beans.
Add the corn/corn salsa and tomatoes.
Add the lettuce; top with diced green chilies and the tomato salsa. Add guacamole if using.
Add the shredded cheese. Top with the cilantro-yogurt dressing, then garnish with lime wedges and sour cream if desired.
