One of our favorite summer dishes - taco salad

Freshly picked from our garden

I started with 80 20 ground beef - abou t a pound and a half - in EVOO

Diced some yellow onion for flavor

Meanwhile, prepared the produce in a big bowl

Garden fresh green bell peppers

Garden fresh jalapeno peppers - no seeds in the dish this time

Added the vegetables to the meat

While the produce awaits...

Cooked until the burger is done all through...

Then drained the grease

Added about half a cup of chicken broth and my taco seasoning

chili powder, cumin, garlic, crushed red pepper, and ground black pepper

and about one large tablespoon of the secret ingredient - dark brown sugar. Shhhhhh

Allowed it to cool before adding to the produce, cheese, crushed corn chips and dressing

I used ranch and thousand island this time, with a couple shots of hot sauce (i forgot to get salsa aad face). It turned out pretty good, but not my best.
