Doritos Taco Salad

Yield: 14 cups


1 lb 95% lean ground beef

1 (1.25 oz) packet reduced sodium taco seasoning

1 medium-large head of iceberg lettuce, chopped into bite sized pieces (if you’ve never chopped up a head of iceberg before you can follow these directions)

1 medium-large tomato, diced

4 oz 50% less fat or 2% sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (such as Cabot)

4 oz nacho cheese Doritos, broken up a bit into bite sized pieces

1 cup light Catalina or French dressing (I used Kraft Lite Catalina)


Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, breaking it up into pieces with a wooden spoon. Add the packet of taco seasoning and stir until well coated. Set aside.

In a large serving bowl, combine the lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and ground beef. When ready to serve, add the Doritos and dressing and toss to coat.
