Taco Salad {with Doritos}

Dorito Taco Salad

Flash backwards to January, NFL Playoffs were underway and I was itching to host a Super Bowl Party.  I decided to make this Taco Salad with Doritos recipe, in honor of my favorite Super Bowl Commercials, and share it on Lemony Thyme the week before the Big Game.  That was the plan.  Right up until our home team, the Falcons, got beat in the last round.

I picked up Atlanta Magazine this week and found an article of interest.  Hollywood of the South.  Atlanta, like most cities, is focused on economic recovery.  There’s a buzz about ‘town’ that Hollywood has come to visit and maybe…set up camp.  Welcome.  As it turns out, this year’s Super Bowl Dorito commercial “Goat 4 Sale” was home grown in Atlanta.  How cool is that?!!

Then I remembered, I had never ‘posted’ the recipe.  A great quick and easy Taco Salad, smack full of flavorful ingredients…and Doritos!  Don’t let the French dressing fool you, it’s perfect with this salad and the kids will love it!!  This is a great dish to share at a pot luck supper or make for a backyard summer cook-out.  Have fun with it, we do.

    I made this last night and it had to honor to grace our Superbowl stay-home tune-in. Together with the Zucchini bread (my best bread machine recipe so far), your taco salad recipe was the perfect snack we’ve had for a long time. I’m giving it a 5-Star. Thanks for sharing!

      It’s the perfect Super Bowl recipe. But wait, come to think of it, there were no Doritos commercials this year?? Thanks for the 5 stars I appreciate that Amanda.
