1 lb ground beef

1 packet (1 oz) taco seasoning

1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped

1 large tomato, diced

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 can (15.5 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Cook the Ground Beef: In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until it’s fully cooked. Drain any excess grease.

Add Taco Seasoning: Stir in the taco seasoning to the cooked beef, following the instructions on the packet (usually, this involves adding a specific amount of water and simmering for a few minutes).

Prepare the Salad Base: In a large bowl, combine the chopped iceberg lettuce, diced tomato, shredded cheese, and drained and rinsed kidney beans.

Add Beef to Salad: Once the seasoned beef has cooled slightly, add it to the salad bowl.

Crush Doritos: Lightly crush the Doritos. You can do this by gently pressing the closed bag to break the chips into smaller pieces. Be careful not to crush them into dust – you want some texture.

Combine Everything: Add the crushed Doritos to the salad. Pour the French or Catalina dressing over the top.

Toss the Salad: Toss everything together until well mixed. The Doritos will soften slightly from the dressing but should retain some crunch.

Serve: Serve the salad immediately. If you’re not serving it right away, keep the Doritos and dressing separate and add them just before serving to maintain the crunch of the chips.

This Doritos Taco Salad is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, potlucks, or even as a fun side dish at BBQs. The combination of flavors and textures makes it a crowd-pleaser! Enjoy your meal!
