Easy Taco Salad

Taco salad with Doritos- SO easy and so good!

Some of you health nuts might scoff at this recipe seeing as though I am trying to eat healthier, but let me begin by saying that if it isn’t pasta I am doing so well! Haha! I am a pasta addict and could probably eat it every day for every meal in different ways and just be happy as a clam. Fat, but oh so happy:) Pasta is also my go to meal when I don’t know what to make or don’t feel like putting much effort into the nights meal. I realize though, pasta is not good…for you that is. It’s really a bunch of carbs with absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever. <sigh> It’s unfortunate, but it’s true…so here I am today with taco salad. This is really good taco salad though:) This batch turned out exceptionally appetizing looking…which is weird, because usually it looks like a wreck but tastes amazing! Lol!  Great taco salad recipe


  • Ground beef
  • Lettuce
  • Taco seasoning
  • Beans – I used black, but you can use chili or kidney as well
  • Frozen corn
  • Red bell pepper
  • Onion
  • Doritos or other corn chips
  • French/Catalina dressing

Doritos and Catalina dressinf in taco salad


  1. Cook your ground beed in a pan with the taco seasoning.
  2. Once it’s half cooked, add your chopped veggies (peppers and onions).
  3. Sauté these for a little while until they are soft.
  4. Add your beans and corn and cook until hot.
  5. Make a bed of lettuce in a bowl and add your cooked ingredients to the top.
  6. Add some French/Catalina dressing and crush some Doritos on top.
  7. Serve!

Note: If you want to serve it as a dish at a party, I would let the cooked ingredients cool down a bit then toss them with the lettuce, dressing, and chips in a big bowl. This is also SUPER good cold as left overs! If you plan to eat it later as well I wouldn’t mix all the ingredients together- they get soggy pretty quickly.

Easy taco salad recipe- simple and fast!

There are certain ways to make taco salad a little better on your diet as well if that’s what you’re looking for. For one, you could take out the Doritos (which I am very proud of myself for only putting 3 or 4 in this time) and you could cut back a little on the dressing or put it lite dressing. Well, I hope you enjoy and let me know if you serve this at your Superbowl parties next weekend!

    I would definitely eat this and yes I know Doritos aren’t the healthiest chips, but gosh darn I bet it gives it a lot of flavor. LOL! I used to eat pasta all the time, but I’ve really cut back. Like you pasta and or pizza, I could probably live off. Thanks for sharing this…NOM NOM!

    This taco salad looks amazing! I recently made a slow-cooker burrito bowl that was similar, but there’s just something about the crunch of a taco that really completes a dish!
