If you do it right, Taco Salad can be amazing. It’s one of my wife’s all time favorites. And she got really excited, when she heard me say that this was going to be my next video recipe post, because this salad has got it all. I’m talking about, not only, a great selection of salad ingredients but an array of toppings that really make this recipe pop. And it’s the combination of those ingredients that really make a great Taco Salad.
4 Major Taco Salad Ingredients
Unless you want to buy some of these pre-made ingredients, you’re going to need 3 other recipes and it doesn’t matter if you already have your favorite go to recipes or if you want to use mine. Either way, it is essential that you have a nice and thick Chili No Beans, a good Guacamole and of course homemade fresh Salsa. I would highly recommend making all of these, beforehand, yourself because let’s face it, store bought Guacamole, Salsa and Chili, never really measure up. But settling for canned ingredients isn’t the worst thing in the world and if that’s the way you decide to go, your salad will still turn out out pretty good. But I would highly recommend going the extra mile on this one and make everything fresh.
The fourth major ingredient, in my opinion, is of course optional but I think is very necessary; Sour Cream. No all you need is your favorite greens and chopped vegetables to make a salad and you’ll be well on your way.

1 head Iceberg Lettuce, chopped or torn

This Kalua Pork Burrito is so refreshing it’s like a tall cold glass of water, it’s that good. Hawaiian meets Tex-Mex and it’s not crudded up with too many spices or seasonings either. In fact, the only added seasoning in this entire combo is Hawaiian Sea Salt and Lime Juice. So the great thing about that is you’re completely relying on the flavors of all of the other natural ingredients. But, if you “just gotta”, add Cumin to the pulled pork.
Pork Burrito made from Leftovers
Carnitas is what you normally here or read on a menu when you’re ordering a Pork Burrito. But this particular burrito was the direct results of my leftover Kalua Pork that was served up on my birthday. So whether you call it Carnitas or just another Pork Burrito, you’re going to love this Wrap. And just so you know, the list of recipes that can be made from a Kalua Pork Roast goes on and on and I’ll list the recipes I’ve already posted down below as well as the original Kalua Pork Roast recipe. Also, I’ve got a great Seafood Enchilada recipe that will blow you’re mind, along with the original Salsa recipe I use in this video.
