Dorito Taco Salad is a delectable salad that my family has served at potlucks for as long as I can remember! Everyone loves a good taco salad recipe, and this one is a surefire crowd pleaser! Seasoned ground beef, fresh chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and, of course, Doritos combine to create an entertaining change to your regular menu!
I adore everything taco-inspired, from pasta to casseroles… and specifically salads! If you have leftover taco beef from another dish, it works well in this taco salad. Indeed, I frequently double the batch of taco meat and freeze it for extra-quick meals on busy weeknights.
One large tomato, I diced it.
4 ounces. Of 2% sharp cheddar cheese, I shredded it before using it.
4 ounces. Of nacho cheese Doritos, I crushed it into bite-sized pieces.
A pound.Of lean ground beef.
Reduced sodium taco seasoning, I used one small packet.
Iceberg lettuce, we will need a medium head, chopped into small-sized pieces.
Light Catalina/French dressing, I used a cup.
I started browning the ground beef, using a medium skillet, breaking up the bits until they were browned stirring using my wooden spoon for few minutes.
After that, I added the packet of taco seasoning over the cooked meat and continued to stir until well-combined.
Following that, I transferred the chopped lettuce Into a big mixing bowl, and I added in the diced tomatoes, browned ground beef, and cheddar cheese.
Once it was time to eat, I sprinkled the crushed Doritos over the salad, and I poured the French dressing on the top. I mixed all ingredients again and served them.
This Salad can be prepared ahead of time! The secret is to mix everything in a serving bowl and simply toss them with a French dressing before serving. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
