This is how I make this salad: In a bowl layer 1# hamburger(browned with onion & garlic). Next layer:1 head chopped iceburg lettuce. Next add your favorite toppings (mine are black olives & chopped tomato). Top with 8 oz taco blend cheese & 8 oz mexican blend cheese. Top with crushed nacho cheese Doritos. Do not add the dressing until just before serving to avoid soggy salad. I use Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing.

Would be better with taco spices

This is a really good base recipe. I cut the cheese in half, four cups of cheese was just too much. I used a cup each of pepper jack and mozzarella. I used the hint of lime tortilla chips, added some medium salsa, and a can of sliced olives. It was great, my boyfriend and friends just gobbled it up!

This is a quick and easy taco salad. Add your favorite salsa and you have a great meal! I used one cup mixed taco cheese and one cup cheddar along with the mozzarella. Adds more of a taco flavor. My husband and I loved this one.

I wanted something quick and easy to make, and this definately fits!!! I was a bit skeptical that it would be all that good, and it's fine. Fiance really liked it a lot, I thought it was just good, nothing I'd want to eat on a regulary basis. I will make again, just not that often. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

we didnt care for this too much. Mainly the Italian dressing taste-didnt fly well with traditional taco salad. It was very easy to prepare.

Really enjoyed this the second time around. We tried the original recipe the first time and it wasn't bad, but after reading a few of the reviews I added some Taco seasoning and it is much better. Definately a keeper.
