Doritos Taco Salad Recipe







Create Your Own Doritos Taco Salad Recipe


 

Today's parents are busier than ever. It's extremely common for both parents to work outside the home. However, you still want to provide good examples and healthy food for your children when you come home. You also need to do this on a budget and within your stretched time schedule.

A Doritos taco salad recipe is a great meal to add to your repertoire. It meets all your exacting needs. The meal is affordable, easy to prepare and healthy.

The foundation for any Doritos taco salad recipe will be the greens. While it's perfectly fine to use a pre-packaged salad mix, choose one that features romaine or leaf lettuce or other types of healthy greens. Avoid iceberg lettuce, as it is lower in vitamins. Add a few other vegetables to the mix. Ideal choices include onion slices, bell pepper and tomato.

Once you have prepared your salad mix, you can add a bit of protein to the meal like brown ground beef and add it to your Doritos taco salad recipe. You can even mix the beef with a can of black beans. A bit of cheese is also a delicious addition that will boost the protein content of the dish.

Also, select a dressing at this time. You can use almost anything you have on hand. Some common choices include ranch, Catalina, thousand island dressing and western dressing.

Now, it's time to put together your salad. Of course, for a Doritos taco salad recipe, you will using corn chips. However, if you don't have them on hand, try tortilla chips as an alternative. Layer them on the bottom of each dish. Add the salad mix and top it with the meat/bean combination. Sprinkle with some grated cheese, either cheddar or monterey jack and add the dressing of your choice. Using cilantro to garnish is a perfect finishing touch. Voila! You have a healthy and delicious dinner.

One of the best things about creating a taco salad is that it is such a flexible dish. You can take the same idea and adapt it to make a casserole or dip, for example. You also don't need to have anything particular on hand. Feel free to substitute and experiment. You can take the general idea and make your family's own unique version of this amazing and quick to prepare meal.
