High Heels & Grills: Taco Salad

Taco Salad

Growing up, it seems that we kind of just cycled through the same recipes week after week. Not that that is a bad thing, but some things, you kind of just get sick of after a while. Tatertot Casserole being one of them. I made Zachary promise when we started this blog that we would neeeeever put Tatertot Casserole on here. So far, we both have been true to that promise. On the flip side though, there are some recipes that I still can't get enough of. My dad's Nachos are one of them {recipe coming eventually} and Taco Salad. I know Taco Salad is nothing original or new, but it tastes like home to me. And it's easy. So it has become a go-to dinner recipe in this house. But you can't use regular tortilla chips though. It has to be Doritos! Just a heads up.
