Taco Salad Recipe

Taco Salad
Here you have a very delicious, simple and easy recipe for taco salad. Many of you probably have a taco salad recipe very similar to this one. It’s perfect for parties. This is actually another recipe I made for a graduation party not to long ago. It’s funny because when I brought this there someone had nearly the exact same one sitting on the table. Oh well, mine got eaten up first at least :D. Unfortunately, I was so busy preparing about 6 different things at once for the party I forgot to take step by step photos. Sorry guys, it won’t happen again I promise
. I find this recipe is great with Doritos but you could use a lot of different types of chips if you choose. I also love this with Catalina salad dressing but once again, if you choose other dressing would work out great as well. If you’re looking for a fantastic recipe to bring to a party or event – give this a try!

This is great! Not a meat eater? Use your favorite bean chili instead of the ground beef. Adds a delightful flavor to the fresh greens.

This was fantastic! I made it last night and served it with nacho doritos, it was devoured! I was skeptical about the dressing but when I tried it i couldn't believe how good it was. Thanks for sharing.
