Kittencal's Taco Salad for a Crowd

chips, beef, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, cheese, dressing, olives, onion, seasoning

Kittencal's Taco Salad for a Crowd -


2 lbs lean ground beef
2 (1 1/4 ounce) packages taco seasoning mix
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 red onion, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 heads iceberg lettuce, chopped
4 tomatoes, chopped (I use Roma)
2 avocados, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups black olives, sliced
12 cups nacho chips, 1 large (I use Doritos)
1 (8 ounce) bottle Catalina dressing (my The Best French Salad Dressing will also work well)


Brown ground beef with the chopped yellow onion (not red).
Add in only 1 package taco mix (and water according to the package direction); set aside to cool completely.
In a large bowl, mix together chopped lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese (can use more than 2 cups if desired, and the cheese may be cubed small instead of shredded) avocados, red onion, olives, and the second package of taco seasoning mix.
Add to cooled beef mixture; toss to combine.
Just before serving toss with the salad dressing.
The last step (JUST BEFORE SERVING) is to mix in about three-quarters of the package of crushed Doritos, leaving the rest on the side for your guests who want extra (they will get soggy if you mix them in too early!).
