Doritos Taco Salad

Doritos Taco Salad

Any time that you can eat lettuce, you know that leafy green stuff, you are doing good.  Growing up, my Dad always had a salad and ice tea with whatever we were eating.  I admit that I don't eat it as often as he does, but I like mixing it up every once in awhile like in this Doritos Taco Salad.

This is a great salad to throw together when you are in a hurry, or on nights that time is limited.  You can actually prepare everything the day ahead.  How easy is that?  It is also an idea dish to take to potlucks, reunions and church pitch-ins.

Doritos Taco Salad

1 bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos (crushed)
1 bottle of Catalina Salad Dressing
2 pounds of ground beef, seasoned with  2 packets of taco seasoning
1 onion
2 medium size tomatoes
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
2 small bags of shredded lettuce OR 1 head of lettuce cut up
1 can of black olives (optional)

Brown your ground beef and season it with the taco seasoning packets.  Drain and the beef and let it cool.  Open your bag of Doritos and squish the bag, to crush the chips.  In a LARGE bowl, add the onion, tomatoes, olives, cheese and lettuce and toss well.  Next add the chips and cooled ground beef.  Toss again.  Add the bottle of Catalina Salad Dressing (depending on your taste, you may like a little more dressing or a little less).  Toss again and serve.
