Easy Taco Salad (30 Minute Meal)
  • 1 lb of taco meat, cooked (see my taco meat recipe)
  • 1 bag Fritos
  • 1 bottle Catalina dressing
  • 2 cans beans (pinto or kidney)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • toppings- lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, sour cream, salsa, etc.
  1. Heat up your cooked taco meat. If it has been frozen you can defrost it and then warm it up over a low-med heat on the stove. (You could also heat it up in the microwave.)
  2. In a medium sauce pan heat your canned beans on the stove.
  3. While your meat and beans are heating up, shred two cups of cheese.
  4. Prep your veggies. I chopped red tip lettuce, diced up some tomatoes and cubed an avocado.
  5. When the meat and beans are thoroughly heated, place a couple of handfuls of Fritos on a plate.
  6. Scoop some taco meat over the chips.
  7. Scoop some drained beans over the meat.
  8. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, etc.
  9. Drizzle with Catalina dressing and/or top with salsa, sour cream, etc.
  10. Mix the salad around to coat and combine.
  11. Enjoy!
