    Absolutely delicious! Everyone loved it! I used Romaine Lettuce and used Chipotle Ranch as a dressing. I didn't premix it, I just put all the stuff on the table and let everyone build their own. I put out green peppers and artichokes out in addition to the tomatoes and onions.

    I make this exact recipe and have since 1990. There are many different ways to do this. I used to use kidney beans, just to get some fiber in, and the kids don't notice. I use black beans now and you could also do ground turkey for a healthier version as well. My kids use thousand island dressing however I use Chipotle ranch. You can also chop up some cilantro to throw in. You can't mess this up. Happy Eating all!

    Quick and easy recipe. I omitted the cheese, used ground chicken instead, and used the light catalina dressing. I will make this again.

    Pretty tasty. although I will tweak the recipe next time. the dressing was a little too sweet. But it was awesome for a first time fix.

    Made of a group of youth. It was well liked. Personally, I'd add some black beans and jalapeno.

    This was delicious. I made it exactly as written, except used two tomatoes and bagged taco salad lettuce blend instead of iceberg. The Catalina dressing gave it a nice sweet and salty flavor combined with the beef and Doritos. Divided into 6 servings, it was very filling.

    This was delicious. I use shredded iceberg lettuce, hot chunky salsa, pico de gallo, canned corn, canned black beans, crumbled spicy nacho Doritos, and ground turkey with taco seasoning. I did not need any Catalina dressing because with the salsa that was dressing enough. I loved it! The above is my low-calorie version. If I were to splurge I would use ground beef with taco seasoning and add guacamole and nacho cheese. Yum!
