Margaret Wells


1 pound lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped into bite sized pieces
1 red or orange pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup green onions, chopped thin, leave a bit for garnish
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
10 ounces Nacho flavored Doritos
16 ounces catalina salad dressing
sour cream, optional

Brown the ground beef until no pink remains. Drain any fat. Stir in the taco seasoning packet and water. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, peppers, black olives, pinto beans, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and green onions. Top with the seasoned and cooled ground beef. Slightly crush the Doritos and sprinkle on top. Drizzle with catalina dressing and toss to coat evenly. Garnish with sour cream and additional green onions if desired. Serve immediately.
