Easy Taco Salad Jar


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 bag of Fritos (Walmart brand)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
  • Catalina salad dressing (or salsa, sour cream, or your preferred dressing)
  • Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, chopped green onions


  1. Cook the Seasoned Ground Beef:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned and cooked through.
    • Drain any excess grease and add the taco seasoning to the beef according to the packet instructions. Mix well and let it simmer for a few minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Prepare the Salad Base:
    • Shred the iceberg lettuce and divide it among the jars or containers. If you prefer the meat warmed, keep the lettuce and meat in separate compartments.
  3. Layering the Salad Jars:
    • In each jar or container, layer the ingredients in the following order:
      • Bottom layer: Fritos (Walmart brand)
      • Next layer: Seasoned and cooled ground beef
      • Followed by: Shredded lettuce
      • Top layer: Shredded cheese
    • Add optional toppings of your choice, such as diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, or chopped green onions.
  4. Dressing and Toppings:
    • Before sealing the jars, add a small container of Catalina salad dressing on the side or drizzle it over the top if you prefer. Alternatively, you can use salsa or sour cream.
  5. Seal and Refrigerate:
    • Seal the jars or containers tightly and refrigerate until ready to eat. If you kept the meat separate from the lettuce, you can heat the meat before assembling the salad.
  6. Enjoy:
    • When you’re ready to eat, give the jar a good shake to distribute the dressing evenly.
    • If you prefer a warm taco salad, heat the meat separately and add it to the salad just before eating.
