  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/4 head lettuce shredded
  • 2-3 tomatoes diced
  • 3/4 cup cheese shredded
  • 2 cups Doritos broken
  • 1/2 cup Catalina fat free
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing


  1. Break up and brown ground beef.  Follow directions on taco seasoning packet to season the ground beef.

  2. Once your seasoned ground beef is done, start layering the rest of the ingredients on top of the beef in a large bowl.

  3. Layer the shredded lettuce on top of the ground beef.  Spread the diced tomatoes over the lettuce.  Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and then the Doritos.  

  4. Drizzle both dressings (Catalina and Ranch) over the top.

  5. Serve layered with a big spoon so each person gets each layer OR combine all of the layers together and serve.

Recipe Notes

If you are planning to make enough for leftovers, you might want to consider putting the Doritos on each individual portion instead of in the whole taco salad.  They will get soggy if left with the other ingredients and kept in the fridge.  

If you do leave the Doritos in and they get soggy, you can add more to give it the crunch again.
