How to Make Easy Taco Salad

  • Drain and wash kidney beans. Mash them with a spatula to make a bean paste.
  • To the bean paste add salsa to create a pinkish looking mixture. Place half of the bean mixture on a microwave proof serving plate.
  • Sprinkle half of the onion, peppers, and cheese.
  • Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, and the crushed taco shells (or tortilla chips). Repeat the same process in a second plate.
