  • 1 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 each red, green and yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning (recipe below - mix spices together to make seasoning, or use store bought)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 field tomato, diced and deseeded
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 20 Cool Ranch Doritos (or any other flavour your heart desires!)
  • 1/2 cup taco sauce (I like the Old El Paso kind)

Taco Seasoning

  • 1/2 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 cup cumin
  • 2 tbsp coriander
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp red chili flakes


  • In a large frying pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over high heat. Add bell peppers and red onion, sauteeing for 2-3 min.
  • Remove veggies from heat and set aside. Lower heat to med-high. Add ground beef, breaking up with a spoon. Add ingredients under the taco seasoning heading, then cook for another 10-12 min until beef is fully cooked.
  • Add lettuce to four bowls, followed by sauteed peppers and onions, ground beef, black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, cheese and cilantro. Add 5-10 Doritos to each bowl. Drizzle each salad with taco sauce and enjoy!
