Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 12 heads lettuce, chopped or ripped apart
  • 2 -3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (6 ounce) package mild cheddar cheese, chopped into small blocks
  • 2 (20 ounce) jars Thousand Island sandwich spread (found with the mayo at grocery stores)
  • 1 bag plain Doritos, slightly smashed


  1. This is a great an easy recipe that can be thrown together at the last minute.
  2. It's great for bbq's and you can really add just about anything else to it.
  3. Sometimes I even like to add a taco seasoning to the beef while it's browning.
  4. Put ground beef on to brown as usual.
  5. While beef is browning you can prepare the rest.
  6. In a large bowl you can mix the lettuce, chopped tomatos and chopped cheese.
  7. Next you add the 2 jars of Thousand Island Sandwich spread, mix well.
  8. When the beef is done you can add that to the salad and mix.
  9. If it looks a little dry add (to taste) the remainder jar of Thousand Island Sandwich Spread.
  10. The Doritos are added last.
  11. If I make this before the meal is served I like to wait till it's time to eat before I add the Doritos, just to keep them nice and crunchy.
