In a frying pan or skillet, brown ground beef over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water and cook until the water has evaporated and seasoning is distributed. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, combine lettuce, pinto beans, cheese, tomatoes, and green onions. Add cooked and cooled ground beef.
If serving immediately, add dressing and chips. Otherwise, wait to add those two ingredients until immediately prior to serving. Top with sour cream and salsa if desired.
Commercially bottled French dressing may be substituted, if you prefer.
Ground turkey may be substituted for ground beef.
Black beans may be substituted for pinto beans.
If you prefer, plain tortilla chips can be used instead of nacho cheese Doritos.
