Updated: Jan 8, 2022

Deliciously seasoned ground meat with fresh veggies, dressing and a tasty crunch


1 – 1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey or beef

1 tablespoon of The Spice Apothecary’s El Taco Seasoning

1 head of iceberg lettuce, shredded

1 small red onion, diced

1 1/2 cups of tomatoes, diced

8 ounces of sharp cheddar, shredded

6 ounce can of drained black olives, halved

One 16 ounce bottle of Thousand Island Salad Dressing

One 10 ounce bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos


Start by browning the meat; break up the meat into small pieces and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Drain if there is any liquid or fat

Add in 1 tablespoon of El Taco seasoning; cook for a few more minutes making sure the meat is completely cooked through and the spices are incorporated. Remove from heat and set aside to cool

Add lettuce, red onion & the tomatoes to a large mixing bowl, toss. Add sharp cheddar, olives, cooled meat mixture, salad dressing and shredded cheddar; chill for 20-30 minutes

Just before serving, crunch up a 10 ounce bag of Nacho cheese Doritos and incorporate into the salad ingredients
