moms taco salad

when i was younger, my mom made this amazing taco salad.  as ghetto as it is, you are going to love it too.  if you dont, you suck and im telling my mom on you.  :)


1 pound meat (and as you all know, mine was fake)
taco seasoning
cheese... lots of it
i also put green peppers and onion in the "meat" while it was cooking but you dont have to.

first, smash up a bunch or doritos.  this is the fun part... and i had a lot of fun making it after a long day at work last week.  just beat the crap outta those chips!! :)  once you have done that, make a layer on the bottom of a greased, 9x13 pan.

next, take the taco "meat" and make a layer on top of the chips.  (obviously, you know how to make taco meat... cook the meat, add taco seasoning and shazam!!  taco meat!!)

after the taco "meat" layer, throw on a bunch of cheese.  the more, the merrier.  repeat these layers until you can layer no more.  then add more cheese... 
i love cheese.  i dont know if you all knew that or not :)

then, during all of this tedious work, you get someone awesome to do their part.  *que richard*  my lovely stepped up and made cocktails... even though he doesnt blog, he does his fair share :)

ta da!!  of course i ate it before i took a picture of it... when food is calling my name, i dont hesitate to answer.  :)  
just bake this sucker for 15-20 mins at 375 and you are good to go.  add whatever you like on top.  i put lettuce, tomato, onion, salsa and of course, more cheese.  richard did all of the above minus onion plus sour cream.  it was yummy in the tummy!

  1. We used to eat this all the time when we would go camping. We'd add the ignredients straight to the dorritos bag and top it with french dressing. We added a few kidney beans as well.

    I'm so excite3d to try this again, I had forgotten all about it!
