The other day I asked R what he wanted for dinner. His response, "That taco salad we always have at family parties". I've never made the taco salad for any other reason except for a party so it was a nice change to our usual pasta, taco, chicken rotation we typically have.
I love taco salads. Any way you make one I'm sure to love it so I was excited for the change. This isn't your typical taco salad though. It's a got a little kick for the spicy side and a little sweetness to smooth it down.
Here's the breakdown:
1 pound ground turkey, chicken or beef (we use turkey in our house)
2 heads of iceberg lettuce - diced
1 bag Mexican cheese
2 tomatoes - diced
Doritos - we substituted this out for Habanero tortillas - crumbled
1 bottle of Catalina French dressing
You could also add in black olives and/or serve with sour cream. We keep ours pretty simple with the above ingredients.
