Add the beef to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon and cook for about 5 minutes until the meat is no longer pink. Stir frequently.

To assemble the salad, add the lettuce to a large bowl or platter. Then add the beef, shredded cheese, tomatoes, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and avocado. Top with tortilla chips and the Avocado Lime Dressing. If desired serve with pico de gallo or salsa. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
This dish is versatile, you can easily swap out the ground beef for chicken or turkey, or you can make it vegetarian by leaving out the meat. It will still be delicious.You can save a few minutes by using prepackaged taco seasoning, but by using your spices, you control the amount of sugar, salt, and preservatives in the dish, and that makes it even healthier! Special thanks to Anna Jones RD for sharing her recipe for the taco seasoning recipe with me.Do not make the dressing too far ahead; the avocado might cause it to discolor.
