Sweet -N- Spicy Taco Salad

I Love Taco Salad! I tried this at a party and I was so excited to find a recipe that matched it. This salad is so delicious with the perfect taste of Sweet -n- Spicy!

Sweet -N- Spicy Taco Salad

2 ripe tomatoes, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 head iceberg lettuce, washed, drained and shredded
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup Catalina salad dressing
1 (7-ounce) bag taco flavored chips, crushed
1 cup salsa

Sour Cream (optional)
Cheddar Cheese (optional)
Tortilla chips, to serve

Cook the ground beef and onions on the stove top. When it is finished cooking, take off the stove top and mix in your tomatoes and Catalina Dressing.  Just before serving, add salsa (I like mine spicy), mixing well to combine with other ingredients. Serve over tortilla chips and lettuce. Top with sour cream and cheese if desired.

    I make one very similar, but add in corn & black beans instead of the tomatoes & onions. I also add in homemade taco seasoning right after the meat browns and before adding the dressing, corn & beans. We are actually having it tonight for dinner!
