Dorito Salad

One of my friends made this for us, and ever since my husband begs for me to make this. While I searched out some recipes on the internet and tried them, they just weren't the same. Here's my girlfriend's recipe. Note - this makes a LOT, and it doesn't save very well, so make sure to serve this to a crowd!

1.5 lb ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1 head romaine lettuce torn or cut into bite size pieces
1/2 medium chopped onion
1 can red kidney beans (drained)
1 can black beans (drained)
1 can corn (drained)
1 c. shredded cheese
1 12 oz. bag nacho cheese Doritos, crushed

Optional - tomatoes, red/green peppers, olives

1/2 c. salsa
1 c. thousand island dressing
1 c. mayonnaise

Combine lettuce, onion, beans, corn, in large bowl and place in refrigerator. Brown hamburger and onions. Drain grease, and add taco seasoning mix along with 1 T. water to meat. Allow to simmer until taco seasoning has been completely blended in and absorbed. Allow to cool. Meanwhile, mix dressing ingredients in separate bowl or blender.

Add cooled meat mixture to refrigerated items. Add dressing and toss entire mixture to coat. Gently mix in Doritos and cheese. Serve immediately.
