We love this version of taco salad with Doritos chips crumbled on top. I've had this recipe for over 20 years and it's perfect on a hot summer day. The dressing is very easy to make and yummy too!

How to Make Taco Salad with Doritos Nacho Chips


  1. Cook ground beef. Drain fat. Add 1/4 envelope of the taco season mix, cook per package directions. After cooking set aside and allow to cool a little.
  2. Assemble your salad with lettuce and veggies as desired.
  3. Add black olives, and kidney beans, drained. Toss gently.
  4. Place salad dressing ingredients in a jar with a good screw on cap so you can shake it up well. See bottom of ingredients list - Starting with salsa through cider vinegar - place in jar and shake it up.
  5. Assemble salad with hamburger on top. Set cheddar cheese on the side. Place salad on plates or bowls then add cheddar cheese. (I don't like it in my left over salad, it gets too yucky). Crumble Doritos chips over the top of it all, and pour on the dressing.
