This is one of my favorite meals. It's salty, cheesy, crunchy, creamy, sweet, and need I say-delicious?
Oh, and EASY.
This is the perfect summer weeknight meal. I like to keep ground beef in the freezer that I cooked up with some taco seasoning, so for this meal, the cooking was basically done!
1/2 pound cooked ground beef (with taco seasoning added)
1 can kidney beans, drained
Doritos (original flavor)
French or Catalina salad dressing
Shredded cheese (I used Fiesta Blend)
If your meat has been cooked previously, then frozen, place in a pan on the stove with 1/4 cup of water and the kidney beans, and heat until beans are tender and everything is hot.
Place all ingredients on table and let people build their own salads. I start with a layer of Doritos that I crush slightly, then ground beef/beans, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and dressing.
This was one of my favorite meals growing up, too! My mom used to mix everything together in a big bowl including the dressing. But my husband leaves the dressing and sour cream off, so it's simpler for me to make it this way.
Enjoy the recipe!
