This Taco Salad is so easy to make. Don't count on any leftovers, because there will not be any!
I think the secret to this Taco Salad is the Catalina dressing, you put it on at the end. It sets it apart from the average Taco Salad.
To make the Taco Salad:
Brown a couple of pounds of hamburger meat. Drain. Add powdered taco seasoning. Add a little water. (You are making this part just as you would tacos). Set aside.
In a bowl put together your greens. This is your preference. I like different lettuces and I also add a few scallions, and of course tomatoes.
Put the greens in a large bowl. Add a bag of crushed Fritos. (I guess you don't have to crush the Fritos, but we prefer ours that way.)
Mix the Fritos with the greens.
To this add the hamburger meat. Over all this mixture pour about 3/4 of the bottle of Catalina dressing. This coats it well and makes it delicious. I like to then put this salad in a Tortilla bowl.
You can either buy the tortilla pack that has the little cardboard shapers in them OR you can use your own tortilla and simply shape them around a small bowl or rameken. Put them in the oven for about four or five minutes, as they are draped over the ramekin and you have your toritlla bowl.
Add cheese according to taste. Enjoy every bite!!
