Cook the Ground Beef: In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until cooked through. Drain off any excess fat, then add taco seasoning and follow package directions for mixing. Remove from heat and reserve.
Prepare the salad base: In a large serving bowl, place a layer of shredded iceberg lettuce as a base. This will serve as the base for the taco salad.
On the lettuce, add the seasoned ground beef, cherry tomatoes, canned corn kernels, canned black beans, shredded cheddar cheese, crushed Doritos, sliced black olives, diced red onion, bell pepper diced and the diced avocado. Arrange the ingredients evenly to make a visually appealing salad.
Dressing: In a small bowl, combine sour cream and dressing to make a creamy dressing. Pour dressing over salad and spread evenly.
Garnish and serve: Sprinkle chopped fresh cilantro over the salad for flavor and color. Serve the Dorito Taco salad immediately, along with lime slices to squeeze into the salad just before eating.
Mixing option: If you prefer a more mixed salad, you can mix all the ingredients in a large bowl before serving. However, be aware that Doritos can lose their crunch if left in the dressing too long.
Enjoy: Serve this vibrant and delicious Dorito Taco Salad as a main or side dish. The mix of textures, from crisp lettuce and Doritos to creamy salsa and ground beef, will make every bite enjoyable.
Feel free to customize the salad by adding or substituting ingredients according to your tastes. You can incorporate additional toppings like sliced jalapeños, diced tomatoes, or even a little guacamole for extra flavor.
