Reviews for Catalina Taco Salad
"Great taco salad. Goes together quickly. Fried the onions in with the ground beef and used a 16 oz bottle of zesty catalina dressing, which was more than enough. If not making for a crowd, don't mix the corn chips in because they lose their crunch as leftovers."
"This is one of my favorite taco salads. I use ranch style beans and zesty catalina dressing and if I want to add meat I add grilled chicken. Excellent meal and flavor!"
"This was a really good recipe. I used the Kraft lite catalina dressing and only 6 Tbsp of it to cut back on some of the calories. The taste was still there! I will definitely make this again when I'm in a fix for a quick dish."
"This is THE taco salad recipe. You can try Western dressing for a little more zip!"
"Another nice option is to use a bag of Doritos brand Nacho Cheese chips, crushed, instead of the corn chips. Serve with sour cream, sliced jalapeno peppers, and your favorite salsa."
