Taco Salad

Don't laugh, but one of my all-time favorite cook books is Kids Cook! Fabulous Food for the Whole Family. Many of our dinner standards come from this book, and this one has been a recipe I crave for many, many years. I made a few tweaks, and there's only one semi-downside of this recipe as I make it. That is, that you have to eat it all in one sitting. It's so good, we don't ever really mind, though.

Taco Salad
adapted from Kids Cook! Fabulous Food for the Whole Family

1/2 lb. ground chuck
1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
1 small head ice burg lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 medium onion, diced
4 roma tomatoes, diced
1 c. crushed nacho cheese Doritos
French Dressing

In a pan, carefully brown the hamburger meat. Add seasoning and half the amount of water the package indicates. Cook until the sauce is thickened.

In a large bowl toss all ingredients, including cooked beef, together, adding dressing according to the amount you prefer.
