1 teaspoon of Di Oliva Baklouti Green Chile Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of Di Oliva Lemon Olive Oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon of chipotle
½ can of tomato paste
1 teaspoon of mustard
Salt & Pepper to taste

4 cups romaine lettuce

Heat the Baklouti and Lemon olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the ground beef, salt, pepper and cook, breaking up with a spatula, for 3 minutes.

In a blender – mix chipotle, tomato paste, mustard – salt and pepper to taste. This will be your meat seasoning vs. using the packaged taco seasoning.

Add the chipotle, tomato paste, mustard mix to your meat. Cook for another 3-4 minutes or until meat is done and most of the juices are reduced. Cool for 5 minutes.

Layer lettuce, beans, corn, tomato, avocado, cheese, olives, meat and tortilla strips/chips in a bowl.

Add the sour cream on top of the salad along with additional tortilla chips, scallions, cilantro leaves for garnish, then serve.

Optional - add your favorite dressing
