It was a huge hit!! My sister and nieces came for a visit and I made this and she asked for the recipe. I had to use fritos as the store didn't have doritos when I was there. Must have had a huge sale!! Anyway, delicious....will make this quite often.
Yum, yum! This brings me back to my childhood> I forgot all about it an was so excited whn I saw it> My mother used to make this and it was one of our favorites. 20 years later, my teenagers love this! In fact, they are upset when they are not here when I make it!
This is a must have for my family, we have made this for years and it started with one of my sisters many my ex boyfriends making this yummy dinner, snack, or take along. We add onions and whatever else salad topping you like.
My mom used to make this for us and I had a SERIOUS craving for it but couldn't remember the type of dressing to use. It was so good. The only thing I did differently was use ground turkey instead of beef, just because I don't like beef. Also I do like to use the mild taco seasoning instead of original, it gives a little kick. Thanks for posting, I LOVE this salad!!
This is REALLY good! I was a little unsure about it, but I decided to try it because it is so different. Boy is it different! In a GOOD way! I LOVED this! It's very different and unique! I saw Paula Deen do one kinda like this, but it wasn't as good. This one is great with ALOT of flavor!! Thanks for a new addition to my family's menu!
I had this salad a few years ago at a cookout, and loved it, and have been trying to find the recipe, and am so glad I did! I used ground turkey.
Wow, flashbacks to potlucks of the 70's. This is really good, and easy. Our only change is kidney beans, drained and rinsed, instead of the ranch beans. Even the 7 year old DS, who doesn't tend to like salad, has seconds when this is for dinner. Thanks for posting.
I was given this recipe by a friend, more than 30 years ago, with the exception being that we don't put any ground beef in it, and it is just as tasty. We use drained, rinsed pinto beans instead of the chili beans, and we add a little fresh cilantro and chopped green onion. You can use any flavor Doritos, but don't substitute plain tortilla chips---the flavor just isn't as good. You can even use fat-free Catalina dressing---it tastes the same to us. I don't add the dressing and chips until it is served, that way everything is fresh and crisp.
The best Taco Salad ever!!! This is the way my mom made Taco Salad too!!! I now make this taco salad for my family. I am so glad to see this taco salad recipe posted!!!
Ditch the salad dressing, made it for my fiancé and the instant I added the dressing I knew I ruined it, tastes like it Catalina dressing with a hint of taco salad. Have had it before as has my fiancé, but never made it, find a different recipe. If made right this stuff is great. If you want to know what this taste like save time and just drink a bottle of dressing?
