This has been passed through our family for years. A great recipe! Some suggestions would be to serve it on top of lettuce, instead of mixing it in. That way you can keep it for leftovers. Also, mix the dressing with the meat, beans, tomatoes and cheese first, then add the chips on top and lettuce on bottom. You can do without one of the onions, and one of the beans, kidney beans work best. A great dip for chips as a snack/appetizer, too!


This has been a staple in our house for years. I don't change the ingredients, just make it more figure friendly. The Kraft "Light Done Right" Catalina dressing is great and has less fat/calories. The leanest ground beef and using romaine/iceberg mix helps too! I also substitute Baked Doritos for the corn chips. Very hearty & satisfying salad...Yummy!!


I served this at a tex mex party and everyone loved it. I left out the meat though, because I was serving it with enchiladas and tacos. Make just what you need, as it doesn't last for the next day. I had everything cut up seperate and did a quick mixing just before serving. I used the chips as a bedding on the bottom of a large bowl and put a few chips on top for garnishing. I will use this recipe again.
