Dorito Taco Salad

Dorito Taco Salad is a delicious salad we’ve been serving at potlucks for as long as I can remember! Seasoned ground beef, fresh lettuce, pinto beans, veggies and of course Doritos all sauced up with a zingy dressing make this an exciting change to your daily menu!


1 lb lean ground beef

1 taco seasoning packet

2/3 cup water

1 head of iceberg lettuce – chopped into bite sized pieces

1 red or orange pepper – chopped

1 green pepper – chopped

1/2 cup sliced black olives

1 can pinto beans (rinsed and drained)

1 cup tomatoes – diced

1/4 cup green onions – chopped thin (leave a bit for garnish)

1 cup cheddar cheese – shredded

1o oz Nacho flavoured Doritos

16 oz catalina salad dressing

Sour cream


Brown the ground beef until no pink remains. Drain any fat.

Stir in the taco seasoning packet and water. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, peppers, black olives, pinto beans, tomatoes, cheddar and green onions.

Top with the seasoned and cooled ground beef.

Slightly crush the Doritos and sprinkle on top. Drizzle with catalina dressing and toss to coat evenly.
