Taco Salad and Chipolte Honey Vinaigrette

I am blessed that my girls have always loved salads. I grew up eating Taco Salad and we used Western Salad dressing. Kathleen found this dressing and we tried it this time and really liked it. It is not very spicy, so don't worry about that.

Taco Salad

1/2 lb hamburger, browned and seasoned with taco seasoning
lettuce
onion
cheddar cheese
tomatoes
bell pepper
kidney beans(opt)
pasta, cooked--wagon wheels is what my sister uses
Doritos, crushed(use your favorite flavor)

You can make individual plates or mix all ingredients together and serve. We usually use a Western dressing or Catalina.

CHIPOTLE HONEY VINAIGRETTE

"Can be used as a salad dressing or meat marinade."

1/2 Cup red wine vinegar
1/3 Cup honey
1 Tablespoon adobo or 2-3 chipotle peppers
2 Tablespoons kosher salt
1 Teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped oregano
1-1/2 Cups olive oil.

Mix all ingredients in blender, adding oil slowly at the end.
