  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced or chopped into small pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 bottle Catalina dressing
  • 2 cups crushed Doritos
  • sour cream


  • Cook and crumble ground beef in a large nonstick skillet. Add taco seasoning and water and cook and stir until thickened. Let cool.
  • In a large bowl, toss together lettuce, bell pepper, red onion, beans, black olives, tomatoes, and cheese.
  • Add desired amount of Catalina dressing. I add about 1/2 a cup. Mix in.
  • Add Doritos and mix them in. Serve immediately, adding a spoonful of sour cream to each serving, if desired. 


Ranch dressing or Thousand Island can be used instead of the Catalina dressing.
