The Frito Bandito
Aunt B. has a full repertoire of "Grandma Food." What is Grandma Food? It's a special category, you won't find it in the index of any cookbook. They don't have a Top Chef episode that teaches you how to prepare food this way. Unless you have a Grandma who shares her secrets, you are just out of luck. Aunt B. is a master chef in Grandma Food. Under wraps, stashed away are a wealth of recipes that you can't find anywhere. Last week I mentioned I needed the recipe for her delicious Mexican Salad that uses Catalina dressing. If you were around during the 1970's you know just the one. She had shared it on Jay Harshaw's Potluck column in the Southwest Times at Fort Smith a while back so she just sent me the clipping. That's the kind of person she is... generous to a fault! Here's the best "Taco Salad" you will ever put in your mouth, share it with others...it's the right thing to do!
lettuce, cut in small pieces
Ranch style beans, partly drained
grated mild cheddar cheese
Mix together to suit your tastes.
*Amounts of each ingredients are omitted from Good Cook's recipes, they don't need exact amounts...they just "feel" the right amount and can make almost anything taste good by using a dash of this and a sprinkle of that!
