Taco Salad

Sorry I missed yesterday, I was on jury duty. If you are interested in that story, you can find a scattered recollection here.
Today I thought I'd share my recipe for Taco Salad. Taco Salad is one of those things I just throw together without any regard for a recipe. I often forget it is a recipe since it's just something I throw together. Feel free to play with the recipe and see what you come up with.

Taco Salad
1 bag doritos
1 pound hamburger
1 packet taco seasoning
1 container sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese
1 bag american/iceburg salad
Fry hamburger with taco seasoning. I often add the seasoning to the hamburger as it is cooking instead of browning and then adding seasoning. This does mean losing some seasoning when you drain the meat and you can not use the color as an indicator of doneness. But it's quicker and doesn't require water.
Drain hamburger.
Crush doritos into bite sized pieces. Dump in large bowl. Add hamburger, lettuce and cheese. Mix with hands or two spoons until evenly mixed. Mix in sour cream until everything is covered.
Serve warm or cold.
