TACO SALAD from javajunkee.



1 head lettuce ( I also cheat and use bags of lettuce..sometimes shredded)
1 lb. hamburger
8 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 chopped onion
4 med. tomatoes, chopped ( I actually use canned …I just drain them) 1 -2 cans
1 pkg. Doritos or some other nacho chips
1 pkg. taco seasoning (reserve 1 tbsp.)


8 oz. Thousand Island dressing
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. taco seasoning (reserved)
1 tbsp. taco sauce

Brown hamburger and drain off fat. Add taco seasoning (remember to reserve 1 tablespoon for dressing). Let meat cool. Layer lettuce, hamburger, cheese, beans, onion and tomatoes in a large container.
Put cheese on top and refrigerate 24 hours.

Dressing: Mix Thousand Island dressing, sugar, taco seasoning and taco sauce. Refrigerate until serving time.

Just before serving: Crush chips (not too small). Add chips and dressing to layered salad and toss.
