Taco Salad

                                    My not so pretty- Taco Salad
My kids wanted me to post my taco salad recipe, so they would have it handy.
It's not attractive, but they love it. This makes a HUGE bowl.
If you think you are going to have leftovers, don't add the beef mixture to the salad. Reheat the beef in the microwave, then add it to individual portions.


For the taco meat:
2lbs. ground chuck
2 envelopes of taco seasoning (I like Taco Bell brand)
1cup water

For the dressing:
1 large jar of prepared salsa
16oz. sour cream

1 head of lettuce-chopped or shredded
1 bag of nacho cheese Doritos-crushed
5 roma tomatoes-diced
8oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Brown the beef. Drain the pan drippings and return the beef to the pan.
Add the seasoning and water. Simmer until most of the water has evaporated.
Dump the beef into a colander (over a bowl), and allow it to drain, while you are preparing the salad.
Combine the dressing ingredients. Set aside.
Combine the salad ingredients.
Mix the dressing into the salad.
Add the beef and mix to combine. Serve.
