Taco Salad Recipe

Here's an easy and excellent taco salad recipe - most requested by my kids' friends when they were growing up.

Head of Lettuce
2 Tomatoes
5 or 6 Green Stem Onions
1 lb. ground turkey (or ground beef if you prefer)
McCormick Taco Seasoning
1 Bag Taco Doritoes
1 package shredded cheddar cheese
1 bottle Otts Famous Dressing

Brown turkey or burger in a skillet - drain and add taco seasoning according to package directions
While ground meat is cooking, chop lettuce, tomato and green onion - put all chopped ingredients in a large bowl (take a pretty big one!)
Add seasoned ground meat
Add shredded cheese - if you do it in this order, the cheese melts slightly
Open bag of Doritos and cruch whole bag with your hands - add to bowl of veggies and meat
Put whole bottle of Otts on top

Mix it all up - I usually use two spatulas and just keep turning and mixing

**I've tried other taco chips and generic dressing and just don't get the desired taste, so I do recommend these specific ingredients.
