Prep Time: 15 min |
Cook Time: 15 min.

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. lean beef burger (or moose/venison)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large jar of medium spiced Picante Salsa (divided)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 head of iceberg lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1 green bell pepper
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
2 sm. cans of sliced black olives, drained
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 regular-size bag Nacho Cheese Doritos chips, slightly crushed
1/2 bottle of Russian (or French) Dressing
--[or click for: Homemade Russian Dressing (make double batch)]

Garnish Options:
Sour cream
Green onion, sliced
Jarred pickled jalapeno slices

METHOD

In a large skillet, brown the lean burger 3/4's of the way, and add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the taco seasoning, and a ½ cup of the salsa and simmer for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool.

Meanwhile, tear the lettuce, and chop the bell pepper. Add them to a large bowl; plus the tomatoes, olives, and cheese. Once cooled, add the meat mixture.

Just before serving add the crushed Doritos (to maintain their crunchiness), and pour in the remaining salsa, and the 1/2 bottle of Russian dressing (or more if you like).

Toss to combine. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, sprinkle with green onions, and pickled jalapeno slices.
