Thrift City Taco Salad
There is no written recipe for making it(that I have anyway).
We make taco meat as you would regularly(brown ground beef with chopped onion and add a pkt of taco seasoning when the pkt calls for it).
Then in large flat individual bowls we layer in this order a 50/50 mixture of chopped Romaine and iceberg lettuce, taco meat, chopped onion, chopped tomato, sliced black olives, Crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos®
shredded cheddar or mexican flavored cheese and then plenty of the sauce(which makes these so special).
Mix one can of enchilada sauce(we use Old El Paso®) and after the can is empty fill it with Catalina salad dressing and add it to the enchilada sauce.
The Thrift City Bar only make these on Wednesdays in the summer when veggie prices are low and runs out of ingredients to make them every time.
These are so very good. It took me years to get one of the bar kitchen help to tell me how they make their sauce.
P.S.....It's important that you use Doritos in this too. Their flavor is also what makes this salad unique.
