Taco Salad

It has been awhile since I had a recipe for the Recipe Swap. This recipe is easy to adapt to your own preferences and is very versatile. It's also a great dish to bring for a potluck or gathering.

Taco Salad

1 head of lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 pound of prepared taco meat (hamburger, turkey, veg)
Chopped onions, peppers, tomatoes-your choice
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 bottle Western salad dressing
1 can kidney or black beans, rinsed
1 bag Doritos or tortilla chips, crushed

Combine all of above ingredients together except for chips. If not serving for an extended period (more than four hours), do not add dressing either. Before serving, add crushed chips and toss along with dressing if not already added. I have seen many variations to this salad. Some people mix salsa and ranch dressing together. So be creative and enjoy your salad!
