Taco Salad

Hey there everyone,

We've been making this recipe for a long, long time. I believe the recipe came to us via a friend of my mother's many years ago. We looked at it and were skeptical at the time of the Dorito and Italian dressing usage, but they truly bring it together. It's really simple and everyone I know loves it. Let's go!

Here are all of your ingredients except the ground beef.
Cook up your ground beef and season it with taco seasoning.

Taco Salad
-lettuce (romaine if possible)
-ground beef cooked, fat drained, then seasoned with taco seasoning
-Nacho Cheese Doritos, roughly crushed
-chopped tomatoes
-shredded cheese of your choosing (cheddar is a good bet)
-Italian dressing
-optional: sour cream, avocados, olives, etc. - make it however you like it.
Layer all ingredients in this order in a large bowl/plate. Leave out what you don't like, and add more things that you do like. And use the Italian dressing- I know it's the weird ingredient out, but it really makes the dish.

Here's mine, with all of the ingredients and nothing else special added.
And here is Jordan's, which he chose to upgrade with some sour cream. Make it your own!

Savor it!
love, rue
