What to Do:

  1. Brown the ground beef in a cast iron skillet.  Drain, saving some of the grease for the refried beans, then season with taco seasoning and set aside.
  2. Add reserved grease and refriend beans to the pans and cook until warmed through.
  3. Chop tomato and onion into small cubes.  Combine and add juice from half the lime.  Salt and pepper to taste. Add cilantro for the complete pico de gallo flavor, or use as-is.
  4. Slice the avocado and lettuce.
  5. Take a small bag of chips and turn it on its side. Cut down the side from top to bottom to open the package.  Add any toppings you like to the taco and enjoy with a fork!

Here are some flavor combinations we recommend:

  • Traditional – Original Doritos, ground beef, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cheese, & sour cream.
