Taco Salads

by Carrie on June 7, 2013

WC-Recipe-Swap-badge-1This theme was Mexican dishes. I couldn’t pass it up no doubt about it it is my favorite dish. I was excited when I got my recipe which was from Amy’s Kitchen Creation. Amy and I live about an hour away from each other and were actually having lunch when I received the email with my choice. Small world. I was even more excited when I saw the recipe. I have had these “taco salads” before but using Doritos. I was excited to try it with fritos.

It was delicious and a fun different take on normal taco salads.

Taco Salads (aka Walking Taco) from: Amy’s Kitchen Creations


  • 1 lb cooked, drained ground beef
  • 4 servings of cooked instant white rice
  • Fritos chips

Your favorite toppings such as:

  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole

Cook your ground beef and drain when cooked.  While the ground beef is browning, cook your rice. When both your ground beef and rice are cooked, assemble your plate (or bowl if you choose!)  I started with rice, added some fritos, ground beef and then my lettuce, cheese and sour cream.

Mix it all up, add some salsa and enjoy!!

I’m glad you liked it! This is one of Matt’s favorite meals so I make it fairly often. I love that it’s so flexible and you can cater it to whatever your family prefers.

What did the girls think of it?

The girls aren’t big chip fans… I know what’s wrong with them. So I just made them tacos. Which the ofcourse cobbled up!

If only I liked Fritos… 🙂 These sound so easy to make.

I like the addition of Fritos in this salad. Tacos salads are always a go-to in our house.
