    JessieGirl's Note:

    Probably real similar to many Taco Salad recipes out there, but made some changes for my fiance and hope everyone can enjoy it as we do! We eat this as a main course fast meal, so the serving size is an estimate. Goes great for informal parties too! *Sometimes I let the meat cool down and sometimes I mix everything while hot! *The Taco Bell Medium Taco Sauce gives it a little heat. I have prepared it with mild and medium and I prefer the medium blend. *I use about 4/5 of the lettuce shreds but use your own judgement. I have used the whole bag before, I just find that after you refrigerate the more lettuce you have used the more soggy it is going to seem. *Add tomatoes if you choose - my fiance is not a fan of tomatoes so I've never made it with tomatoes.

      In our house we call this one Dorrito taco salad. :) This is a yummy salad that everyone seems to look forward to. We have been known to add a can of kidney beans to the meat while it's cooking and it adds to the dish nicely. Low fat way to bulk up the protein. My husband typically uses ranch dressing with this one and I personally like italian adds a nice tang to it...and surprisingly it tastes really nice with it. :) You should give it a shot. I'm happy to see this on here. :)

      Simple and good! Ours seemed to need more lettuce; I can't fault the recipe and good reason was given for not overdoing it, but I think we'll stir in a little more at serving time so it's not in there in storage. We served this for supper and our family members ate big heaping servings, but the recipe makes a lot and there will be some for tomorrow. Nice variation on a classic and enjoyed by all.
