Mexican Chef Salad

This is a great recipe for a salad my sister made when I was growing up. It sure brings back memories!


1 pound lean ground beef
1 small to medium onion, chopped fine
2 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of chili beans, a little of the juice drained
1 head of lettuce, chopped into salad sized pieces
3-4 small tomatoes, chopped into pieces
1 package of shredded cheese (I use the Mexican 4-cheese, but you can use any you prefer)
1 small bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos (not the super size)


Brown the ground beef, onion and garlic in skillet. Add the taco seasoning during the browning process. Mix in the can of chili beans, heat through.

In very large bowl, toss together lettuce, tomatoes and shredded cheese. Add the beef/bean mixture, mixing thoroughly. Right before serving, crush down the Doritos, and add to the mixture, coating completely. Serve in large bowls. You can serve with Ranch dressing, sour cream, green onions, guacamole, salsa, or any other topping you like.
