My recipe is like yours, Sierra, except it calls for Catalina dressing.
Of course, you can do all kinds of things with it. I add avacados and substitute canned garbanzo beans for kidney beans, which I don't like. I generally skip the salad dressing and serve the salad with Pace Piquante Sauce and sour cream on top.
We haven't had a taco salad in a long time...thanks for reminding me!
We get by with a little help from our friends
