Dorito Taco Salad is a huge favorite! A delicious combination of taco seasoned ground beef, Doritos, taco toppings and catalina dressing.
DORITO TACO SALAD
I grew up as a Navy brat (that's what they call us military kids). My Dad was deployed pretty frequently. That left my Mom, who also worked outside the home, taking care of us kids by herself, fixing all the house disasters that always seemed to happen the minute Dad left and doing her best to get meals on the table. This Doritos Taco Salad was one of those meals. And let me tell ya, it is still a favorite of mine to this day.
