Easily adaptable, fun, and loved by all ages, this is a favorite in our household.
Recipe type: Main Dish or Appetizer
Serves: 8
  • Layer one: Mexican Ground Beef (see recipe card below)
  • Layer two: 1-2 cups thinly sliced Romaine heart (see video demonstration on easy way to wash)
  • Layer three: 1½ cups of salsa (can be homemade, but I used a sugar-free, organic store-bought brand)
  • Layer four: 6 ounces of olives, sliced or quartered
  • Layer five: Chunky Guacamole (see recipe card below)
  • Layer six: Smokey Bacon and Vegetables (see recipe card below)
  • Layer seven: Chopped Cilantro
  1. In a large saucepan, make the Mexican ground beef according to directions below, Set aside beef, and put hot water in the pan to deglaze, Scrap off any browned bits, and rinse off.
  2. Make the Smokey Bacon and Vegetable layer next in the same pan, making the Guacamole while the vegetables are cooking.
  3. In a clean casserole dish, or dish of choice, layer the ingredients. We like this best when the beef and bacon layers are still a little warm. If chilling, make sure you have drained the beef and the vegetable/bacon layer of extra fat well (fat will congeal once chilled). Enjoy!
