Very interesting take on a taco salad. In the past, I've always complained about the chips being on the bottom in a traditional taco salad...this way, they're incorporated in every bite! I followed the recipe as close as I could with the ingredients I had on hand. Only changes: I used black beans and didn't have any jalapenos, so I used hot, hot salsa. Thanks for the recipe, DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!
I wanted to like this recipe, & enjoyed the crunch of the chips in it. However, I found it too dry, it needed some sort of "dressing." There's another taco salad recipe I like better that uses French dressing. Sorry.
This was excellent! Hubby is a San Antonio native and he gave his stamp of approval. Changes I made: brown the beef with chopped sweet onion, use shredded lettuce in the bag, rinse the beans thoroughly (and I have subbed other types of beans for the pinto). This is very yummy and customizable. Always a hit. We really like having this on hot days.
Fresh ingredients make this a most wonderful dish...
Wonderful Taco Salad. I like not having to use a salad dressing or if you want, a little ranch or italian can be tossed at the last minute. Will fix this often this summer for a cool dinner.
This was delicious. DH raved about this one. I used ranch style beans and mixed them in with the meat and let it simmer for about ten minutes. I mixed the cilantro with the chopped tomatoes. I didn't mix everything together, we built it on our plates. We did top ours with sour cream. This was perfect for using up all those broken tortilla chips near the bottom of the bag too! Very good for a fairly quick meal. Thanks Debra, we really enjoyed this salad.
Wonderful recipe!! Made it for a salad potluck at chuch - it was all gone!! I left out the jalapeno - was an older group - but would use it and hot salsa for my family. Made everything the night before and mixed it just before we ate, was perfect!! Will make this again and again!!
This was wonderful. Made it last night. I didn't have cilantro or green onions but it was good without them. Had some left over, just reheated and my hisband said it was better than last nights. The lettuce was a little wilted but it didn't matter. Thanks Debra, your recipe is a winner in our house.
