We first had taco salad during a potluck dinner after an exhibition the kids were in, the kids loved it and I got the recipe. Over the years I've adapted and changed the recipe to fit our needs but it still holds true to the original. As with most recipes this is meant as a guide line, feel free to add your own touches and substitute ingredients to fit your tastes. This isn't a cheap meal by any means but it feeds a LOT of people or a family of 5 can eat multipul meals
Step 1: Lets get started
Some ingredients may be in your pantry or refrigerator if not then go shopping like I did.
Your going to need..
a couple of onions
a couple of green bell peppers (you can add other types to fit your taste)
a bottle of creamy french dressing
a bottle of catalina or russian dressing
3 packs of taco seasoning
3lbs of ground beef
a large bag of doritos, or mix it up with 2-3 different flavored smaller bags
a chunk of chedder cheese
a chunk of montery or pepper jack cheese
