Taco Salad with Catalina dressing.

My husband asked for this for dinner tonight, so I thought I would share the recipe with you again, as it is really good in the summer!
Ridiculously good Taco Salad recipe!

This has been a staple meal in our house for quite a few years now. It is a kid and hubby favorite! I love it because it is easy and yummy!!

First, brown 1lb. ground beef or turkey with 1 packet of taco seasoning. When cooked set aside and let cool.

Chop 1 head of iceberg lettuce into pieces, cut up one tomato ( isn't this a beautiful heirloom one from my garden!) and finally grate 1 cup of carrots.
Next, drain and rinse, 1 can ranch style beans and 1 can black olives. Have your kids slice the olives.

Add it all together into a LARGE bowl.
Call your kids in and make them help! Add 1 package of your favorite yellow cheese mix. Almost an entire bag of nacho cheese Doritos crushed and a bottle of catalina salad dressing. Now if you can find the sweet honey great, if not just use regular.
Add the cooled meat and cheese. If taking to a potluck, wait and put the dressing on when you get there. ** Make sure to get the Sweet Honey Catalina or the Original, not the kind with the spices in it.
Again, have your kids or the BIG kid crush the Doritos up into the salad. This is my BIG kid, I don't have man hands!
Serve with sliced avocado... I would have but my dumb store only had rock hard avocados, darn.

I looked everywhere and I didn't actually post anything on the Rangers. But I checked My Dallas Mommy since she is up there and I think she is the one that did the post go here and see if that is it:

Is that a Mr. Stripey? I tried to grow one this year and it bombed.

Tiffany said...

No..... Now I can't remember what kind of heirloom they were!
