This is a great fun meal to have with company or just your own family! Adults and kids seem to love it!

1 lb. hamburger
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 16 oz. can dark red kidney beans (do not drain juice off)
1 1.25 oz. package taco seasoning mix
1/2 tsp. salt & 1/2 tsp. pepper

Brown hamburger in a large skillet, add taco seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in tomato sauce, kidney beans. Simmer on for 15 minutes.

1 head lettuce (chopped into bite size pieces)
1 medium onion (chopped)
2 large tomato's diced
1 lb. cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 can black olives pitted and sliced
sour cream
2 limes (sliced into 1/8 sections)
1 bag of Fritos corn chips
Texas Pete hot sauce
Sweet pickle relish

Place each of these into a serving bowl and dish up the meat sauce into a serving dish. Start by passing the Fritos (we crush the chips on our plate before adding anything else) and then the meat sauce followed by the lettuce and on down the list. You just stack it up on your plate and then enjoy the greatest tasting meal ever! Be careful as this gets big, fast, on your plate!!! Sometimes I also chop avocado and also serve shredded coconut with this. Just let your imagination run wild!
