For the few of you that read this who aren't in my family, and in honor of the warm weather, here is my Featured Recipe of 2007:

(Almost) Kelling Family Doritos Salad

1 head of lettuce
4 Roma tomatoes (the small kind)
1.5 cups shredded cheese (or more to taste)
1 can black beans (or kidney or Ranch Style) (washed and drained)
1 lb. hamburger meat
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 bag of the cheapest tortilla chips Wal-Mart has to offer
1 bottle Light ("Free") Catalina

Chop lettuce and tomatoes fine, put in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle cheese and beans on top.

Fix meat according to the taco seasoning packet (usually you brown the meat, add a bit of water and the seasoning and simmer for a while). Drain mean (if needed). Sprinkle meat on top of salad.

Grab three large handfuls of chips and crumble on top of meat. Pour on half of the bottle of dressing, and mix well. Add two more crushed handfuls of ships and half of the remaining dressing, mix well. Add one more handful of chips, crushed, and the rest of the dressing. Mix well. (It takes me this many steps because I have a just-big-enough mixing bowl. If you have a large enough mixing bowl, you might be able to get away with less steps.)

Serve immediately. Accept praise from everyone who is eating the salad (even if it is only you).
