1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

Wash & rinse lettuce. Spread leaves onto paper towels to drain. Pat it dry with more paper towels. Tear lettuce into bite-size pieces and put in a bowl. Set aside.
Cook ground beef in a skillet and break up the ground beef as it is cook into smaller pieces. As meat is browning add the onion. Cook meat until all pink is gone, stirring and checking all the time. After meat is done, drain any fat with paper towels or into a grease jar.
Stir the tomato sauce and jar of taco sauce into the meat mixture. Cook until mixture is bubbly on medium-high heat. Turn the burner to low and simmer uncovered about 10 minutes or until mixture is thick. Stir now and then. Turn off burner and remove skillet from the burner.
Arrange tortilla chips on each plate. Sprinkle lettuce over chips. Spoon the meat mixture over the lettuce. Sprinkle the meat mixture with cheese. Add sour cream and salsa, if you like. (Makes 4 servings)
