Top with rows or groups of beef, kidney beans, cheese, jicama, and tomatoes. Sprinkle with green onions and cilantro. Pass remaining dressing mixture. For garnish add cubed Avocado, or make Guacamole as a topping. Tortilla chips are also an excellent compliment to this dish.
Note: This recipe works well with chicken breasts too!
