Dorito Taco Salad

We’re diving into a simple, scrumptious dish that doubles as both a satisfying lunch and a tasty dinner. We’re crafting a taco salad featuring crunchy Doritos. Let’s gather our ingredients and get started.


  • 2 lbs (around 907 grams) of ground beef
  • 2 packets (1 oz each) of taco seasoning
  • 1 cup of Doritos chips
  • 1 cup of corn kernels
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • A handful of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup of black olives, sliced
  • A handful of green onions, chopped
  • French dressing as needed

Remember, the beauty of this salad lies in its flexibility. Feel free to add or omit ingredients as per your preference.


  1. Begin by heating a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add your diced onion. 
  2. Saute the onion until it becomes translucent. The aroma of cooking onions should start wafting through your kitchen, setting the stage for our delightful taco salad.
  3. Next, introduce the ground beef into the pan. Use a meat chopper or a spatula to break the beef into smaller bits. Continue stirring until the meat browns thoroughly.
  4. After the beef is properly cooked, you might notice some grease accumulating in the pan. Using a couple of paper towels, soak up the extra fat for a healthier salad.
  5. Now, it’s time to spice things up. Sprinkle in your taco seasoning packets, followed by the corn. Give it all a good mix to ensure even distribution of flavor. Taste the mix and adjust the seasoning as per your preference.
  6. After the beef mixture is ready, turn off the heat and let it sit. Meanwhile, prepare your salad base. source
  7. In a large salad bowl, combine the chopped lettuce, green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, and olives. Toss these ingredients together to mix them well.
  8. Add in the prepared taco-flavored beef into the salad bowl. The portion you use will depend on your preference, but for a four-person serving, adding half of the prepared mixture should be enough. 
  9. Next, give your salad a delightful crunch. Take a handful of Doritos, crush them lightly, and sprinkle them over your salad.
  10. Finally, drizzle your favorite French dressing over the salad, and give it one last mix. Your Dorito taco salad is now ready to be devoured!

There you have it! A simple, delicious, and colorful Dorito taco salad that’s perfect for a quick lunch or a filling dinner. This recipe is adaptable, inviting, and sure to be a hit in your home. Remember, you can always tailor it to your personal taste preferences. Happy cooking, and see you in the next post!
