A friend brought this taco salad for supper after the birth of one of my children (sorry don't remember which one :) ) I had never had taco salad that had all the ingredients mixed together, we always layered the items but this was yummy & oh so easy to make.
1 head lettuce, shredded
2-3 tomatoes, diced
1/2-1 C chopped onion
8 oz. bottle thousand island or western dressing
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. dry taco seasoning
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
6 oz. pkg. nacho cheese doritoes, crumbled
In a large bowl combine lettuce, tomatoes, onion & salad dressing. Brown ground beef. Drain excess fat. Stir in taco seasoning & cool. Fold ground beef and cheese into salad. Immediately before serving, add taco chips and mix well.
