1) Over high heat, sauté onions in vegetable oil until they start to brown. Add half the taco seasoning packet and cook for 1 more minute.

2) Add the ground beef, remainder of taco seasoning, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly, while also breaking up the big chunks of ground beef. Cook for 8 - 10 minutes, or until no pink remains. When cooked, remove from heat and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Place in the refrigerator to cool.

3) To make your dressing, mix together chipotle peppers and ranch dressing in a bowl. If the chipotle peppers are whole, throw them in a food processor or blender until they’re smooth. Add less ranch for a spicier dressing.

4) When beef is chilled enough, mix beef, lettuce, olives, corn, tomatoes, cilantro and cheese in a large bowl. Top with dressing and toss well. Add more or less beef & dressing per your liking. Top with crushed up taco shells, serve and enjoy!
