      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Recommended Posts

My family LOVES this stuff - note the CHEAP ingredients

1-2 lb. Ground Beef (we use sirloin)

taco seasoning mix

2 cans Bush's hot chili beans (they are not hot)

ranch dressing


lettuce (we use romaine)

shredded cheese

Nacho Cheese Doritos

Cook the taco meat

Drain the beans (don't wash them though)

In a BIG bowl mix: meat, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, ranch dressing (how much is up to you)

Crunch up the Doritos into pieces about 1/2 as big as they are in the bag

Doritos in a bowl

Spoon the mix on top

Cheese next

Mix and enjoy




Let me know what ya think when you try it! grin

We do something very similar except we don't use taco seasoning on the meat and western dressing rather than ranch. We call it sweet taco salad. Last time we made it we added diced up avacado as well. Yum!

In college, our buddy used to make taco salad like this when we'd get back from the bar. I suppose the only difference is dressing versus mayonnaise. It's all good though and does the same job. Nice post.

Pretty similar version with a couple of exceptions:

-meat always with taco seasoning

-Western or Catalina dressing (try both and decide which you prefer---we have an argument at our house but both are good)

-Taco flavored Dorito's

-usually do some form of beans (wife doesn't care for kidney beans so it depends on who is eating)

-wife wants black olives

-usually buy pre-cut lettuce for simplicity

-anything else you like on your tacos add it (I've got to add the the avocado next time as suggested!)

Made the mistake of bringing this to work one time on a treat day now I get bugged every time it is my turn for treats that it needs to be made for the group.

The group doesn't realize that my hamburger is heavy ground venison with some ground beef so I've got folks eating venison that don't have a clue.

I like the original recipe, I'll have to try that.

Try plopping all that stuff on a pizza! Thats one of my favorite homemade pizzas, minus the doritos and add a few jalopenos also. cool

I make a mean taco pizza that my family loves.

Make or buy your crust. Top with Refride beans, chopped onion and cheese and pop it in a 425 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.

While pizza is in the oven, chop up lettuce and break up Dorito Taco chips. (additional items you can chip to put on would be olives, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, you get the idea).

Take pizza out of oven, top with lettuce, your choice of other toppings, cheese and taco chips. Searve with salsa to put on top.

    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
