Taco Pasta Salad is an easy pasta salad recipe that we love to serve at meetings. This hearty salad has a secret ingredient that gives it an extra crunchy flavor: Nacho cheese doritos.
1 pound of golden lean ground beef
1 box of cooked and rinsed rotini pasta
1 package of taco seasoning
1 can Bush chili beans
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 cups of grated Mexican cheese
1 head of grated iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 1/2 cups French dressing
1 bag of Doritos cheese nachos, slightly crushed
sour cream and extra green onions for garnish
In a large bowl, mix ground beef, pasta, taco seasoning, chili beans, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, green onions and French dressing.
When ready to serve, add the Doritos. (Wait until you are ready to serve to stir the Doritos or they will get soaked).
