I used Spicy Ranch instead of the Catalina dressing. I cannot stand for meat to have a sweet flavor.
This is delicious! I made two minor changes and used red onions instead of regular and nacho Doritos in place of plain tortilla chips.
Loved it! Didn't think the dressing was too sweet at all.
This recipe was very good and super easy. My husband ask that I not lose this recipe. So I will definitely be making this dish again.
I loved it! My family didn't really like the Cantalina dressing, so next time I'm going to replace with taco sauce. This is definitely a keeper!
