Amy Fecher from Beavercreek, Ohio shares the colorful taco salad that is her husband's favorite meal. "Because it is simple and he looks forward to it so, I find myself fixing this at least once a month," she says. "And for those brisk fall days, spicier chili beans can add some welcome heat."


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chili beans, undrained
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 2 cups corn chips
  • 4 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato


  1. In a small skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, green pepper, onion, olives and salt if desired; heat through.
  2. On two plates, layer the corn chips, lettuce, beef mixture, cheese and tomato.
