Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring and breaking up the meat as you cook, until it's browned, about 5 minutes. Drain, then return to the skillet.
Add the garlic and the taco seasoning. Cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes, until the meat is well-coated. Turn the heat off.
To make the salad, arrange the ingredients on a large serving plate as shown in the video and in the photos. Start with a layer of shredded lettuce, then arrange the remaining ingredients on top of the lettuce as shown.
After presenting the beautiful salad, you can take it back to the kitchen, dump everything into a huge bowl, mix, and serve.
1. I find that there's no need to add a dressing to this salad. The toppings - salsa, guacamole, and sour cream - work beautifully as a tasty dressing when mixed into the salad.If you still want to make a dressing, I suggest whisking together 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, ½ teaspoon ground cumin, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt.2. Make sure to wear gloves when preparing the jalapeno.
