  • 1 bag (255 g) Doritos® Cool Ranch® flavoured tortilla chips
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (500 g) ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pouch (35 g) taco seasoning
  • 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 6 cups (1.5 L) assorted chopped crunchy lettuce (such as iceberg, Romaine and green leaf)
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 10 radishes, sliced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) ranch dressing
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

How to make it:

  1. Using hands, lightly break Doritos® tortilla chips into smaller pieces; set aside. Heat oil in large, non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat. Crumble in ground beef; cook for about 5 minutes or until browned. Add onion and garlic; cook for about 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Sprinkle taco seasoning over beef mixture; stir in 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water and beans. Simmer for 7 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in half of the broken Doritos® chips.
  3. Meanwhile, divide lettuce among six shallow bowls. Top with beef mixture, tomatoes, avocado, radishes and remaining Doritos® chips. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with green onions.

Tip: If you like, you can really load up this salad by adding corn along with the black beans, then topping with shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese and serving with lime wedges.
