Beef Taco Salad
I’m sharing this Taco salad with Doritos and western dressing with you because it was one of my favorite things at today’s potluck dinner at work. The potluck was given a taco theme and this Doritos taco salad was a perfect hit.
Often times, you find the best recipes for potluck food right at work.
I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a display of slow cookers like the one in my work lounge today. Although our department only has a dozen or so people, we always have enough to feed double that number and today was no exception.
My contribution was the mozzarella meatballs recipe that we shared with you a few days ago and although it didn’t exactly fit with the taco theme, there were plenty of Tex-mex recipes that did, including this beauty of a pot lucksalad.
