Doritos Taco Salad

Doritos Taco Salad - taco meat, kidney beans, tomatoes, lettuce, Catalina dressing, cheese and Doritos. Quick Mexican recipe. Kid-friendly - who wouldn't want to eat Doritos for dinner?!

I got this recipe is from my Mom. She used to make it all the time when I was growing up. I ate it without the lettuce, as I was not a fan. However, I was a big fan of the Doritos! I still am. They are my kryptonite.

This taco salad is so simple and only takes a few minutes to toss together. The only real cooking involved is browning the taco meat. Everything else is just dumped in a bowl and tossed together. We both loved this! How could we not? Taco meat, kidney beans, cheese, lettuce, Catalina dressing and Doritos - what's not to love?!?!

  4. Hello, Stephanie! This looks delicious! Do you have any idea of how many calories this has ? I must tell you that it has taken me 30 minutes to type this. It's so slow, and I ended up having to type one letter by letter So I will make this short. Thank you so much, love this site!!

  6. I first saw this salad at a Tupperware party in1968 to advertise their large Fix and Mix bowl. I have been making it ever since. And I still have the bowl.
