This Kraft Foods recipe would make for a great quick, cheap and easy weekday lunch or dinner. While the Kraft variation may not contain the healthiest ingredients for a salad, this recipe is easily adaptable.

  2. Add seasoning mix and water; mix well. Bring to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 3 min.
  3. Divide lettuce among 4 plates. Top evenly with meat mixture, tomatoes, cheese and crushed chips. Drizzle with dressing.
