Favorite Taco Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mish K.

My mom has made this for years, and I make it all the time at parties and it is so good!! You can really add more or less of the ingredients to suit your taste. I have added taco seasoning to the meat, and have even bought the premade taco meat, and it works good too!

We call this Dorito Salad, I've been making a very similar recipe to this for years. I've used onion instead of tomato, think the tomato would make a wonderful addition and will try it. It's an often requested recipe to potlucks and bbq's.
