food-ie friday...

I just have to post this recipe for this taco salad on here that my friend Dayna shared with me.  This salad is a big hit in our house, and it's the perfect meal for anytime!  And I didn't think it would be good as leftovers because I thought the chips would get too soggy....but the romaine lettuce keeps it crunchy :)


Try it out and let me know what you think!
you will need:
1 1/2-2 lbs gr. beef
taco flavored doritos (crushed)
red pepper (chopped)
green pepper
zesty italian dressing mix (i use two packs)
big bag romaine lettuce
ranch dressing
brown your hamburger, add italian dressing mix. in large bowl mix everything together and mix in ranch to your desired amount!  So simple and so so delicious!
We have made it through the first week of school...and I think it went pretty good:)  Even tho Alanys tried to claim she was sick on Wednesday.  I overheard her telling Lindsey that she likes playing on the swings, but she didn't like singing her ABC's twice!  She went to school that day....and after school, she told me she was glad she went! 
Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. We just had taco salad for dinner, I will have to try this one, it looks good! Heidi

  2. I love taco salad too, but my family thinks of it as more of a side dish. I also add kidney beans to mine.
