Reunion Taco Salad

My good friend (NY Manzanita on my friend list) gave us a CHOMP book for our wedding. She tried, compiled, typed and printed all the recipes herself. We love this book and use it all the time. This recipe is one of our favorites. It's super fast and easy to make.

1 bottle Kraft low fat Catalina dressing (we only use half)
1 can of ranch beans, drained (we've tried it with all sorts of beans and really like kidney beans)
2 T. Salsa
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 C. cheddar cheese, grated (we use whatever is in the fridge, usually Colby jack)
Large green salad
Corn chips

Mix salad dressing, beans, and salsa together and set aside. Cook ground beef and drain fat. Make large green salad and toss together with ground beef and dressing mixture. Top with cheese and some corn chips just before serving.

Hey...I have to agree...that is a pretty tasty salad. My mom got that recipe from one of her cousin's at a family reunion and so it is now called "Reunion Taco Salad." Glad you like it.

I'm gonna make it regardless of the fact that it is nearly 12 points per serving. I figured you split this recipe by four. I'll try to eat less....yea right, who am I kidding, I'm gonna eat the whole thing!
