This recipe should be called VERY EXTRAORDINARILY EASY TACO SALAD! or it could even be called VERY EASY VERY YUMMY EXTRAORDINARY TACO SALAD! But no matter what you call it I am VERY sure that your family will love you for fixing it and you will love how quickly you are in and out of the kitchen! I make this recipe on church nights because it’s quick to the table and clean up is EASY too!
Easy Taco Salad (Original Recipe)
2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion
1 envelope (or 1 tablespoon) taco seasoning (next time I am probably going to up this to 2 tablespoons)
1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces (I buy the shredded lettuce that comes in bags)
1 tomato, diced
1 bag Nacho Flavored Doritos
1 1/2 cups Mexican (or taco) cheese, shredded
1 bottle French Dressing
Brown ground beef and onion. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning until well blended (DO NOT ADD WATER).
In a large bowl, or individual serving bowls (I use the individual bowls for easier clean-up). Layer the lettuce, meat, tomato, cheese, and Doritos.
Then top with dressing and serve!
I do not let the hamburger cool down before using it on the salad. I also use individual serving bowls because I have some who do not like tomato.
