MMMMMMM taco salad. Mr. Giggles favorite (without beans) and Rae's favorite and I like it too!

My mom made this all the time when I was growing up. I had forgotten about the catalina dressing!

I make a salad similar to this and love it! Could you please tell me what ranch style beans are?

Hi Jelli Bean - I was wondering if anyone would ask about the beans! ;-) I think they might be a regional thing. "Ranch Style" is a brand name. The can is black. The are just seasoned, canned beans with a western, bbq type flavor - a unique taste. If you can't find them pinto beans would work just fine. :-)

My mom made this all the time when I was growing up too. We love to eat it a lot in the summertime.

I've had this or something similar but have never tried making it. Must try.

Chili beans work good in this too. Wonderful light dinner.

We substitute Doritos for the Fritos and add taco seasoning to the beef. It's a family favorite. But don't make to much because it can't be saved.
