This is a recipe that I requested often as a child and now I serve it to my family.It has such a fresh taste and soooo good.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Brown ground beef,drain off fat and add taco seasoning.
  2. In a very large bowl add all the other ingredients except the meat and catalina,add the meat after it has cooled down some so it will not melt the cheese,about 5-10 minutes.Pour the Catalina over the entire salad,using about half of the bottle and adding more as desired,toss to coat the salad.Serve immediately.
  3. This recipe will serve a crowd and is not recommended to refrigerate any leftovers as will become soggy.
  4. ENJOY.

I have been making this for years, taking it pitch-in's and get-togethers. I was going to post it myself but I thought I better check if anyone else makes it like I do. There are a couple of differences from mine though. I use a bottle of Ortega taco sauce instead of Catalina and I use Doritos chips instead of fritos. It was really really good when they used to make the Salsa Verde flavor of Doritos...a little spicier!!

I had eaten this before at my mother-in-laws church. I was looking for this recipe and this one is perfect. The first day I cut the recipe down alot and made just one bowl to make sure this was it. The next day I made the whole recipe and served it for lunch for me and my two sons(3&4) They liked it alot considering they hate lettuce. Thank you so much Will keep for ever.
