This is great! Since I don't like Fritos, I used Doritos and a can of red kidney beans. It's a great change of pace.
This is the standard "taco salad recipe" here in the U.P. (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan. I've made this one for years. Sometimes I add a can of green chilies or chopped jaolopenos if I want to kick up the heat to offset the sweetness of the Catalina dressing. I had friends who were transplanted from Phoenix last summer over for a barbeque and she avoided this salad (she of Mexican decent) until I begged her to take a taste. One bite and she was hooked! She now says this is her favorite taco salad recipe!
wonderful salad for a hungry crowd...I've made it before and always use a can of red kidney beans (drained) and sometimes use thousand island dressing
Delicious and easy. Only problem I had was trying to figure out a way to save the leftovers. I may try just mixing all the items in individual bowls next time so the leftovers don't go to waste. We don't like tomatoes so I substituted avacado instead. Yummy!
I've made this one for years with one exception. Try rinsing the kidney beans in a strainer and soaking them for a couple of hours or ovenight in the Catalina dressing. Then just pour them in. HUGE difference in taste.
I made this salad to go with some burgers and it was hit with my family. The only thing I did differently was I used Nacho Doritos in place of thecorn chips. We loved it. Thank you for sharng.
Excellent! I mix together everything (just before serving) EXCEPT the Fritos and ground beef. I serve them on the side, as well as refried beans. Then we build our own salads- but since there's so much good stuff in with the lettuce (I added corn, too)- my hubby gets a lot more greens! :)
The four of us thought this salad was way too sweet, and sort of soggy tasting. Was quick to throw together, but won't be making it again.
I thought this was very tasty. My husband really enjoyed it, and it was so easy to make. I just did exactly what the recipe called for, except I added a couple more green onions.
This was very yummy!! I used ground turkey instead of beef its lower in fat and cheaper in money. I also used thousand island instead of catalina. I added kidney beans as well and left out the tomatoes. It was Delicious!! This recipe is a keeper!!! Thanks for sharing!!
