Make a Taco Salad: Put the lettuce in a large bowl or on a large serving platter. Top with the chopped tomato, cheese, cooked ground beef and salsa. Sprinkle with 2 cups crushed tortilla chips.

Want a veggie version? Open a 16-ounce can of refried beans, and dump them into a saucepan. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring a few times with a wooden spoon, until beans are warm. Spoon beans into a serving bowl, and serve with the salsa and the other taco toppings.
