This is not your typical taco salad... it is so addicting! My husband makes this for us and we devour it. I have never liked Catalina salad dressing (and I still don't) but you MUST drizzle Catalina over this salad (I top it with salsa and Catalina) HOLY CRAP ... The taste is incredible! It's always a family hit and we never have leftovers. Our 18 month old eats all of his serving too!
1 pound ground beef
1 16oz can ranch-style beans (undrained)
1 bag Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos (we usually use about 3/4 of the bag)
1 head of lettuce
Salsa (we use Medium Pace)
Catalina Salad Dressing
Grated Cheddar Cheese
Chop tomato and lettuce and put in a large bowl. Brown ground beef, add beans to cooked ground beef. Let the juice from the beans cook into the meat. Add meat and beans to lettuce and tomatoes, smash the bag of Doritos and add to the bowl with the other ingredients. Toss well. Serve immediately. Add toppings to each individual plate. Top with a small amount of Catalina and/or Salsa. ENJOY!
