How To Make Cool Ranch Doritos Taco Salad

For this tasty taco salad recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • ground beef
  • taco seasoning
  • Cool Ranch Doritos
  • shredded lettuce
  • tomatoes diced (or 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half)

It’s a really easy salad to make.  Really.

You start by placing browning (cooking) ground beef in a skillet until it is no longer pink.  Add the taco seasoning and follow the directions on the packet.  One it has cooked, set it aside.

Place a layer of crushed Cool Ranch Doritos on a plate.  (I use some really nifty bowls that are perfect for salads.)
