It's SUMMERTIME in Texas, and we are loving it! One of my all-time favorite summer meals is Taco Salad. The big bowl I made this week:
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it!
I'm sure it's quite similar to many out there, but we absolutely love this one!
1 LARGE head of lettuce, chopped
1 can light red kidney beans, washed & drained
2-3 cups shredded cheddar > in my opinion, you have to put in alot of cheese!
1 package Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 lb ground sirlion + 1 pkg Taco Bell Taco seasoning
about 10 oz thousand island dressing (buy the regular 16 oz size & you'll have plenty!)
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons medium salsa
Preapre meat & seasoning accoding to package directions. Prepare sauce by stirring all together in a separate bowl...I let it sit a little so the sugar dissolves. Toss all together & add Doritos last.
TIPS: only add a few Doritos if you think you'll be saving some of the salad as leftovers (they get soggy & you can always add fresh ones as you go!) If you don't have enough dressing, just toss a little more thousand island and a bit of sugar together, then add to the salad.
