The French dressing is cooked up with the ground beef, beans, and taco seasoning. Then it 's poured over the other salad fixings - lettuce, tomatoes, Cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef and drain excess fat. Stir in the taco seasoning, chili beans and French-style dressing. Fill the dressing bottle 2/3 full of water and add to the skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
