Paula Deen's Taco Salad

I am posting the recipe as written by Paula Deen but I made a few changes. I used shredded taco cheese instead of cubed cheddar cheese. I mixed in a cup of salsa instead of topping each serving. I also used regular tostitos instead of doritos to mix in. The salad is great and very quick to make on a busy night.
