  • Taco John's sauce??
    Does anyone have the recipe for Taco John's sauce that they use on Taco Salads? They might refer to it as their house sauce. My sis is addicted to it.

    This is the whole recipe. I have made it lots of times and I must say it is very, very good.

    A bar in my town serves a taco salad to die for, but only one day a week. And then only in the summer when tomatoes are cheap and fresh. Every body around jones for them all winter. Well lucky me I made friends with a cook that was fired from there and she was more than happy to give me the recipe.
    They brown ground beef with commercial taco seasoning and top it with chopped lettuce,tomato,onion, and finely crumbled Doritos Nacho Cheese Chips. This is covered with shredded Monterray Jack cheese and here's the kicker. They make a sauce of equal parts enchilada sauce and Catalina dressing. Believe me these are wonderful!

    I have been looking for the Taco John's hot (red) sauce recipe and it looks like it was posted here at one point but has since been removed. I would love it if anyone has this recipe or one for Taco Via salsa as I do not live close to either of these restaurants. Thanks so much and have a great day!

    There is no written recipe for making it(that I have anyway).
    We make taco meat as you would regularly(brown ground beef with chopped onion and add a pkt of taco seasoning when the pkt calls for it).
    Then in large flat individual bowls we layer in this order a 50/50 mixture of chopped Romaine and iceberg lettuce, taco meat, chopped onion, chopped tomato, sliced black olives, Crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos®
    shredded cheddar or mexican flavored cheese and then plenty of the sauce(which makes these so special).
    Mix one can of enchilada sauce(we use Old El Paso®) and after the can is empty fill it with Catalina salad dressing and add it to the enchilada sauce.
    The Thrift City Bar only make these on Wednesdays in the summer when veggie prices are low and runs out of ingredients to make them every time.
    These are so very good. It took me years to get one of the bar kitchen help to tell me how they make their sauce.

    P.S.....It's important that you use Doritos in this too. Their flavor is also what makes this salad unique.
