This is one of my favorite things to eat, so much flavor with not a lot of effort. My family loves to build their own, and this is the perfect recipe to do that.

How to Make Crunchy Dorito Taco Salad


  1. Brown meat, drain fat. Add 3 seasoning packs with amount of water indicated, stir well and let simmer.
  2. Heat up refried beans in a medium sized sauce pan, add 1/2 to full cup of meat mixture and stir well.
  3. Set toppings out, and build your own.
  4. We served homemade guacamole with ours.


    3 avocados, peeled/chopped
    3 medium sized limes, halved and juiced

    Cilantro, chopped
    Salt/pepper to taste

    Mash lime juice and avocado together, leaving some pieces chunky for texture. Stir in cilantro, red onion, salt and pepper.
