Super Sloppy Frito (Pie) Salad
Not quite a taco salad, and not quite a traditional Frito pie — whatever it is, this salad is delicious. It’s infinitely modifiable to suit your particular tastes. Instead of using taco meat, I decided to go with my Super Delicious Sloppy Joe beef to give it some extra zip. The combination of all the flavors together with that Frito crunch works perfectly. The sloppy joe beef is a little bit sweet and went perfectly with the spicy jalapenos.
If you want to make this with your favorite taco meat recipe, you might want to toss the romaine in a little chunky salsa first to give it a little extra spice. This salad makes for a perfect lunch or dinner. It’s super easy to make and super easy to eat — it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
