Doritos Taco Salad

Another one I found on Pinterest.

D made it and it was really fast to make. It was quite bright to look at. And it was very tasty. It reminded me of Taco Salad where you always leave the shell on the plate and want it but your pants say no. But after a run, this was really good.

D and I both liked it. We didn't use the French dressing that was suggested because we both thought it was weird. D used Chipotle Ranch Dressing and I used Salsa and Sour Cream. We would have again.

Sounds like what I normally do when we have tacos, only with crumbled up taco shells instead of Doritos. Yum!
