Catalina Taco Salad

Easy and fun for the family! Trapper and I REALLY liked it. It takes only 20 minutes and it serves up to 6. Not ideal for just two people 'cause it's not that great as leftovers.

1 lb. Ground Beef
1/2 c. Catalina dressing, divided
2 Tbsp. Chili powder
8 cups of torn iceberg lettuce
1 c. broke tortilla chips (we used nacho cheese doritos and it added more flavor)
3/4 c. shredded cheese
1/2 c. chopped red onions (I hate onions, so we omitted that part)
1 tomato, chopped (I recommend using fresh.....ours were a little older and slimier...)
1 avocado, chopped

Brown meat in skillet; drain. Stir in 1/4 c. dressing and chili powder; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.

Cover platter with lettuce; top with chips, meat mixture, cheese, onions, tomatoes and avocados.

Drizzle with remaining dressing.
