We really loved this easy-to-make and very yummy salad! I seasoned up the taco meat with some paprika, chili powder, oregano, and garlic salt. I also added a few sliced black olives and chopped bell pepper pieces to the salad then tossed it with French-Italian Salad Dressing recipe #94469 and Black Pepper Jack Doritos. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe ~ It's a definite keeper!

This was my contribution to a weekend cottage getaway. Everyone loved it. I made it just as written except that I didn't measure the cheese, I just added the whole bag. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.
