Expert Tips

Want a veggie version? Open a 16-ounce can of Old El Paso® refried beans, and place in a microwavable bowl. Cover and microwave on High, stirring a few times with a wooden spoon, until hot. Spoon beans into a serving bowl, and serve with the salsa and other taco toppings.

Craving salad? Place lettuce in a large bowl or on a large serving platter. Top with the chopped tomato, cheese, cooked beef and salsa. Sprinkle with 2 cups crushed tortilla chips.
