Thrift City Taco Salad

There is no written recipe for making it(that I have anyway).
We make taco meat as you would regularly(brown ground beef with chopped onion and add a pkt of taco seasoning when the pkt calls for it).

Then in large flat individual bowls we layer in this order a
50/50 mixture of chopped Romaine and iceberg lettuce,
taco meat,
chopped onion,
chopped tomato,
sliced black olives,
Crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos®
shredded cheddar or mexican flavored cheese
then plenty of the sauce(which makes these so special).

Mix one can of enchilada sauce(we use Old El Paso®) and after the can is empty fill it with Catalina salad dressing and add it to the enchilada sauce.
Just Mx equal amount Catalina with enchilada sauce

The Thrift City Bar only make these on Wednesdays in the summer when veggie prices are low and runs out of ingredients to make them every time.
These are so very good. It took me years to get one of the bar kitchen help to tell me how they make their sauce.

P.S.....It's important that you use Doritos in this too. Their flavor is also what makes this salad unique.

I've made this taco salad for several years, except as the dressing it called for a bottle of Thousand Island instead of the sauce/dressing mixture

Taco meat is ground beef mixed with a package of taco seasoning found in our grocery stores. The seasoning is a mixture of chili powder, cumin and other spices...you can find recipes by searching the net.
