dorito taco salad

Excellent salad and the family loved it, and oddly enough, I prefer a taco salad over tacos, any day. My wife wanted chickpeas so I used those in place of pinto beans, did not use the bell peppers, none available. I did make the taco seasoning, cooked the chickpeas from dry, and I even made the Catalina dressing.

How To Make dorito taco salad

    Heat a non stick pan and add the ground meat and onion. I used mince pork. Cook until no pink is visible then drain off the fat, return the pan to the burner. Add the taco seasoning mix and the water, stir to mix together. Simmer until the water is evaporated, stirring occasionally. After it is cooked, set the pan aside to cool while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
