Taco Salad

Sorry I have been M.I.A for the last couple of days. I am still trying to do homework/sleeping/read all my textbooks after getting my other wisdom teeth out Friday. Anywho, about a week or so ago I was in the store (Kroger as always) and for seem reason I was wanting to make tacos. I love Mexican food like you wouldn't believe. There was a point where I use to eat it about three to four times a week.

Originally, I was going to make tacos but ended up buying these tacos flats that I used to make a taco salad with. I usually make a taco salad one of two ways: as a regular salad that I end up putting taco meat on top of with salad dressing and the other way is how they do it at some restaurants where they use the tortilla bowls. 

2 lbs ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning (from Fresh Market)
1 can Fiesta Style Corn
1 cup mild salsa
8 Ortega fiesta flat bottom tortilla shells
1/2 cup Mexican Style shredded cheese
1/2 white onion, chopped

1. Brown the turkey meat in a heated skillet.

2. Drain turkey meat. Add chopped onion and 1 can of fiesta corn.

3. Preheat oven to 350 (to bake the tortilla shells)

4. Add taco seasoning packet (following instructions on packet). Simmer the meat and seasoning for 5-7 minutes on low.

5. Stir in 1 cup mild salsa. Cook mixture for another 5-7 minutes on low.

6. Place the tortilla flats on an ungreased baking sheet. Cook according to box (think it was 5 minutes).

This is the end result of what I made.

I added lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese on top. In the end, I put Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch on it. If you have not tried this dressing yet, I would highly recommend it. 

One things I am going to start doing is posting one to two recipes a week whether it's a drink one or food. Since its' getting to be that time of year around these parts (4 more days and counting YAY!!!) I am going to be making more food and drinks. 

Is there anything that anyone would like to see on here food or drink wise??
