Taco Salad is a family favorite comfort food. It is so easy to prepare that anybody will enjoy to munch. I like how easy it is to make on a busy day. All you have to do is cook the ground beef together with the taco seasoning while all the other ingredients comes from the pack and anybody can fix it anyway they want it to.

*Do not press the pancake while cooking.
*You can substitute buttermilk with milk.
*The pancake batter can also be used to make waffles, just make the batter a little thinner and pour into a preheated waffle maker.
