Taco Salad

Hi Guys, I have another great recipe for you.  This is a recipe I am sure you have seen floating around the internet.   I first had this some time ago when I worked at the Chicago Board of Trade.  This was something that was only made on Tuesdays and it was sold out fast.

I have wanted to make this recipe for some time now, and I finally did it.  This recipe took me back to my days at the CBOT when I worked there.  My family loved this and I will be making this again.   I hope you enjoy and try.



2 lbs. ground beef (chicken or turkey)

3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (or your choice)

1 bag of Doritos or corn chips

1 bottle of Katolina dressing

1 cup black olives (chopped)

1 head of lettuce (chopped)

2 or 3 tomatoes (chopped)

1 medium onion (chopped)

2 packages of taco seasoning



Cook ground beef until no longer pink and drain any access fat.

Add in taco seasoning packs and cook per package directions.

Let meat cool for a few minutes and begin making the salad.

In a large bowl add in the lettuce, tomatoes cheese, onion, black olives and taco meat.  Give this a good stir.

Put the Doritos or corn chops into a zip lock bag and smash them up.

Then add the chips to the salad bowl and give that a good mix.

Start pouring the Katolina dressing in mixing along the way.  Use as much or as little of the dressing you want.


After all mixed up


Note:  I did not use the full bottle of dressing.
