American Taco Salad

June 7, 2012

This taco salad is a totally American creation.  Ground beef is placed on a bed of lettuce along with red kidney beans, tomatoes, cheese , onions and more before being tossed with French dressing and Doritos.  If you are looking for a more authentic take on taco salad, swap out the French dressing for salsa with a dollop of sour cream and go for plain tortilla chips as opposed to Doritos.  American taco salad is a fun dinner to have every once in awhile and will motivate your kids to eat their veggies.
