My Mother made this for our rather large family in the hot summers back in the early 70's. I enjoyed it then as well as today.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown ground beef and add taco seasoning as per directions on package. Set aside. Drain and rinse can of pinto beans and set aside in separate dish. Prepare all other ingredients and set aside in separate dishes. this is a layering process, so I just have all the ingredients lined up buffet style, grab a plate and build you salad.
2
Grab a handful of lettuce and place on your plate, then a handful of Fritos,couple spoonfuls of ground beef mixture,couple spoonfuls of pinto beans,then tomatoes, onions,and ending with some shredded cheese. pour the desired amount of Taco sauce over you salad and enjoy. You can also add chopped avacados and a dollop of sour cream if you like. This can feed at least 4 people easily, depending on how big of a salad you desire.
