Hi and thanks so much for posting this recipe. My mom used to make this when we were kids but she left off the dressing so we could choose what flavor..it goes with southwestern ranch, green goddess, french, catalina, blue cheese and plan ole' sour cream. She also sauteed the onions and added fresh green ones and used chili beans and left some of the chili flavored juice in the lettuce. The chili juice and the juice from the tomatoes coats the lettuce so much already that we don't miss the added calories from all that added dressing! Anyway, I made your posted recipe tonight and added my mom's changes and as I ate I found myself thinking about old times....
I was looking for something different to make using ground beef and came across this recipe. I was skeptical about trying it because of the dressing but it was good. I used Frito Lay corn chip scoops instead of the doritos. Instead of mixing it all together, I made individual salads and topped it off with a dollop of sour cream. The leftover ingredients are easier to store this way and you don't have to worry about the salad getting soggy. My son and I really enjoyed this meal.

Great easy salad. Instead of iceberg since no one in my house likes it, I used 2 romaine hearts. Also instead of 2 tomatoes, I used a pint of grape/cherry tomatoes diced. To add some extra protein, a can of drained and rinsed kidney beans! Even as left overs tastes good, although the chips lose their crunch.
This was a great recipe that I used as a base for a taco salad. I made some changes such as romaine lettuce instead of iceberg, Fritos instead of Doritos, added sliced cucumber to salad, and sauteed garlic and onion with the ground beef. I omitted the dressing, and it was absolutely delicious. Boyfriend and I both loved it. Thanks for the recipe!
What a great salad for a crowd! I needed to take a salad to a Mexican themed buffet, this was a hit. I too used canned chili beans instead of the ground beef and taco seasoning. The hosts were having meat so the salad with chili beans was perfect for the occasion. I also added a drained can of shoepeg corn which was a nice touch as well. Thanks for sharing.
