I remember hearing about this recipe the day I met my husband. He would start talking about this salad/nachos and his eyes would roll around and he would start salivating just thinking about eating this food. Funny thing is Dave really doesn't like much Mexican food. It took almost 13 years for me to meet Laura Pittman and taste her recipe at a big Simpson graduation party. The party was wild....but that's for another blog!!!! The salad was worth the wait and it is FABULOUS!


1-1/2 lbs ground sirloin
1 head iceburg lettuce chopped
3 tomatoes diced
1 medium onion diced
1 green pepper diced
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg taco mix
1 (16 oz) Russian salad dressing
1 bag regular Doritos

Brown the sirloin until well done and drain. Mix the beef with all the diced vegetables in a 13 X 9 pan. Make the packaged taco mix according to the package directions and mix with the beef and vegetable mixture. Pour the bottle of Russian dressing into the mixture and combine.

When you are ready to serve (the beef should still be warm) add Doritos so they stay crunchy and cheese. So good!

If you would like to share a recipe please email it to me at so we can all eat such great food.
