Taco Salad

I got this tasty recipe from my grandmother, who got it from who knows where. What’s great about it is that it’s fast, easy, and you can easily adapt it according to your tastes, how many people you are serving, what ingredients you have available, etc.


  • 1 head Romaine lettuce
  • 1 can beans (mexi, black, pinto, whatever you prefer)
  • shredded cheddar
  • Fresh tomatoes, cut into small pieces
  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped scallions
  • Tortilla chips, crushed
  • Kraft Catalina dressing
  • Taco seasoning, optional, to taste


  • Heat beans in a small pot with some of the juice
  • Mix lettuce, tomatoes, and onions in a large bowl
  • Sprinkle cheddar cheese over veggie mixture
  • When the beans start to bubble, remove from heat and pour over the cheese
  • Add dressing and seasoning
  • Add crushed chips
  • Stir it all up
  • Enjoy!

*I haven’t included detailed quantities, because it’s really up to you how much of each ingredient you put in.
