This recipe is from my friend, Heather, who insisted it was "the best taco salad EVER, and you have to try it!" Sure enough...it is!
One word of warning, this makes a HUGE amount of taco salad. Be sure to mix it in the largest bowl you own! :)
1 lb. ground beef
1 large head or bag of shredded lettuce
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bag (13 oz.) Doritos, crushed
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1/2 c. Italian dressing
Prepare ranch dressing according to directions on packet, add Italian dressing and chill.
Brown, drain, and cool ground beef. Add taco seasoning (without water!), mix well.
Add lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheese to ground beef. Refrigerate until serve time. Just before serving, add dressing. Mix well, stir in Doritos.
Feeds a HUGE crowd!
