Enchilada Salad

Enchilada Salad
This Enchilada Salad was sooooo good, da bomb!  I'm calling it an Enchilada Salad because it's made with enchilada sauce.  However it does have faux tortilla chips so it's kind of a Taco Salad as well.  Call it what you want but you MUST make this.  So simple and easy, it's perfect for a weekday meal.  It has some crunch, it tastes great, it's a winner.  Even my carb-eating "I can't eat a salad for dinner" Hubs loved this meal.  The faux tortilla chips are my Cheese Crackers recipe.  They are easy to make and add a nice crunch.

2 servings

2 slices Deluxe American cheese (must be DELUXE American)
4oz shredded cheddar cheese ( I prefer to shred myself but the pre-done stuff is fine too)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 10oz can red enchilada sauce
4 cups lettuce (I used an iceberg and romaine blend)
4 TBSP sour cream

Make "tortilla chips" by following the cheese crackers recipe using the Deluxe American cheese.  Set aside.  Brown the beef and onions together in a large skillet over medium heat.  Drain.  Return to pan and add the enchilada sauce.  Heat until sauce and meat mixture is hot.  Build salad on each plate with 2 cups of lettuce, then beef mixture, shredded cheese, 2 TBSP sour cream.  Then place the "tortilla chips" around the edges (they get mushy pretty fast so keep them dry on the sides until time to eat).  Yum!
