    gailanng's Note:

    Supposedly this is the original version of the renown Taco Salad. No Catalina or Ranch dressing. I've included some substitutions, too. Halve for a smaller makes a LOT. One more thing, do a taste test first, but try adding a little salsa to the dressing. It's delicious.

      With a paring knife, remove the core from the head of lettuce, as well as any thick ribs. Wash and drain well on paper towels in the refrigerator. Pat excess water from lettuce with more paper towels.
    2. 2
      Brown the ground beef with the chili powder, cumin, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Drain well. Set aside and keep at room temperature.
    3. 3
      Tear the chilled lettuce into bite-size pieces and combine in a large bowl with the beef mixture, beans, tomatoes, onion, cheese, Fritos and avocados. Toss to combine ingredients.
    4. 4
      Mix the salt and lemon juice with the mayonnaise and stir until smooth. Pour mixture over the salad and toss again. Serve at once. Makes about 8 to 10 generous servings.
