Recipe by robingracejohnson

This is different than your traditional taco salad in that it has rotinin noodles, crunched up doritos, and catalina dressing to top it all off! It is delicious and makes a lot, so that means lots of left overs! Or feed it to a crowd for a birthday party or family get together!
