Gourment Taco Sald--Mexican Mess

Growing up this was called Mexican Mess in my family. It's really just a delicious taco salad variation. It is VERY easy to make with four simple ingredients...but the meat prep takes a little extra work.

In 9x13 pan layer:
1 15 oz can refried beans
2 cups shredded eye of round roast (see recipe below)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small bottle Medium Pace Salsa

-Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or 350 for 30 minutes
-Serve over bed of shredded lettuce. Top with
salsa, diced tomatoes, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, creamy cilantro ranch dressing, corn chips, etc.

Meat Recipe:
Brown Eye of Round steaks (about 2 1/2-3 lbs) in frying pan (about 2 minutes on each side). Place steaks in crockpot with 1 cup water and 1 envelope of Lipton Dry Onion Soup. Bake on low for 8 hours. Shred meat.

Hints: I like to buy a large Roast from Sams or Costco, then cut it up into steaks. Then I have extra to freeze. This meet works well to make BBQ sandwiches or steak tacos, etc.
