“Another recipe my mom used to make. Its different, but SO good! Definitely not like a traditional taco salad. Its a nice alternative though!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped lettuce (more or less to your liking, I love lettuce and always add more)
  • 1 cup chopped tomato (more or less to your liking, I love tomatoes and always add more)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (more or less to your liking, I love cheese and always add more)
  • 1 finely chopped red onion
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning (I use El Paso, but any will do)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can ranch style beans (you cant get these everywhere, so you can also use any brand of chilli beans)
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Catalina dressing
  • 1 (12 1/2 ounce) bag Doritos


  1. Fry ground beef and add taco seasoning.
  2. Mix ground beef and ALL ingredients, except Doritos (unless you don't mind soggy), in a large bowl.
  3. Refrigerate.
  4. Mix in Doritos and enjoy!
  5. Note: I enjoy this nice and cold from the fridge, but you may prefer it warm or room temperature.
