The nice thing about this salad is that you can mix and match ingedients, depending on what you have on hand.  For example, I have used garbonzo beans instead of kidney beans; replaced the thousand island dressing with red or spicey green salsa (the runny type, not pico de gallo type); and for those who need to be gluten free, use 100% corn chips instead of Doritos.

Chop one onion, 4 tomatoes and one head of lettuce.  Toss with 4 oz grated cheddar or monterey jack cheese and 8 oz of Thousand Island or other salad dressing. Break into small pieces 3/4 bag of Dorito or other chips, any flavor.

Brown one pound ground beef along with one package of taco seasoning, then add one small can of drained and rinsed kidney beans, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, white and black pepper to taste, and simmer ten minutes.  Drain.

Mix the meat and bean mixture with the salad ingredients and toss.  Garnish with sliced avocado and more shredded cheese, if desired.  You can also garnish with sour cream and the last of the bag of Doritos or corn chips.
