Taco Tuesday just got a little more delicious with this kid approved Dorito Taco Salad recipe. Perfect for potlucks too!


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 head of iceburg lettuce, chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounce) pinto beans (or black beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Catalina or French Dressing
  • 2 cups Doritos (we like taco flavored, but nacho works too)


    1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Once no pink remains, drain off excess fat.
    2. Add the packet of taco seasoning to the beef and stir until fully coated. Set aside.
    3. In a large serving bowl, combine the chopped lettuce, tomatoes, olives, green onions, beans, cheese, and ground beef.
    4. When ready to serve, toss salad with dressing (just enough to coat), and add the Doritos. ENJOY.


  • Wait to add the dressing and doritos until you're about to serve the salad. That way the chips stay crunchy and the veggies don't get soggy.
  • If you're packing this taco salad for a portable lunch, keep the dressing in a separate container or zip log bag. Then add it to the tupperware container of salad ingredients and shake to combine when you're re ready to eat.
  • Does everyone in your family have different tastes? Put all the ingredients out on the counter for a "Taco Salad Bar" and let everyone assemble their own bowl!
  • Need a little more heat? Serve this salad with a side of salsa or hot sauce for sprinkling on top, or sliced jalapenos! You can also add a little extra chili powder or cayenne pepper to the beef along with the taco seasoning if you like.
  • GARNISH. Feel free to top with sour cream, guacamole, and sliced black olives if desired!
