Wandering Taco™

This is my version of the tailgate classic. I've used ground round but you can use turkey for even vegan meat if desired. 

1 lb ground meat ( lean Beef)
1 T olive oil 
1/2 c  chopped onion
1/8 c chopped bell pepper
1/8 - 1/4 tsp  each: salt, pepper 
1  c salsa 
1 clove garlic (chopped, crushed)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp chopped cilantro
1 lime, juice and zest
1 10 oz package corn chips
1 c each: shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes,
1/2 c sour cream

Heat saute pan over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add oil. if needed. Add onions and meat. Brown meat and onions for 8-10 minutes. Drain excess grease from meat (If using lean beef, omit step). 

Add salsa, garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, lime zest and chilies to meat. Cook for another 4 to 6 minutes or until done. Squeeze some lime juice over meat mixture.

To serve: Pour corn chips into bottom of 4 bowls. Spoon meat mixture over corn chips. Top with your favorite fixings. 

Serves 4.
