    1/2 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

    Sounds good-looks hard! Is there a ga-ga-ninny version?

    How is it hard? You mix the beef with taco seasoning. You saute peppers and beef in a pan -- you could buy roast beef slices and shred them -- then you put salad stuff in a bowl. You add the rest of the olive oil and lime juice, then the beef and peppers, then cilantro and cheese. Serve with tortillas or put into tacos.

    Dead easy. I'm going to make it this weekend, but I have to make the veggie version for hubby.
