Tired Mama Taco Salad

Ever have one of those weeks where there don't seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished that needs to be done?
That describes this week in our house.
Monday night we were supposed to have tacos.
Instead we opted for a taco salad of sorts that was a smashing success.
The key ingredient:
If Taco Bell can do taco shells made of Doritos, why not taco salad?
(In my opinion, this taco salad was better than the Doritos Tacos, but that's me...)
1 family size bag of Doritos
shredded lettuce
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, browned & drained
(taco seasoning for ground beef, if desired)
white corn
fresh tomato salsa (onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and tomato)
chunky prepared salsa
shredded colby blend cheese
*sour cream*
1. Brown ground beef and drain. Season with taco seasoning if desired.
2. Steam corn until thoroughly heated.
3. Layer taco salad with ingredients as desired.
4. Enjoy!
Hint: Don't forget the sour cream - we did! Not everyone likes sour cream, not everyone likes guacamole - but that's what is great about this meal. Each person can pick and choose what ingredients they want to include. A good meal for fostering independence! No leftovers makes for an easy clean-up too!! Another tip is to skip the taco seasoning in the ground beef. There is enough seasoning on the Doritos and in the salsas to make it up - it wasn't missed at our house!
