Taco Salad

1 lb. ground turkey or beef, browned & drained
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1/2 large head lettuce, cut into pieces
1 can light or dark red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
2 tomatoes, cut into pieces
1 can sliced black olives, drained
1 package shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 - 1 - (8oz) bottle Creamy French or Catalina Salad Dressing
1/2 of bag Fritos corn chips or tortilla chips

Brown turkey or beef until cooked through.  Add taco seasoning and finish cooking as directed.  Allow meat to cool.

In a large bowl combine lettuce, beans, tomatoes, olives, cheese & meat.  Add 1/2 bottle of dressing & toss.  Add more dressing until desired amount is achieved based on personal preference.  Top with chips & enjoy!

For a fun variation, serve in a tortilla shell.  Spray both sides of a large flour tortilla with non-stick spray and place in a bowl suitable for the oven.  Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes.
