I've made taco salad before but decided to try this one because it seemed a little different with the addition of french dressing. I gave it three stars because I did make some changes. As written I would probably only give it one star. I only used 1/2 a bottle of French dressing. If I had use the whole bottle it would have been WAYYYY too much. The french dressing gives the recipe an odd sweetness. I used mild salsa because it's what I had on hand. It would have been MUCH better with medium or hot salsa. Let's see, I used black beans instead of chili beans, torn spinach and bibb lettuce instead of iceberg. I never use iceberg lettuce on ANYTHING because there are better choices out there with higher nutritional values! I layered the salad versus tossing it all together (crumbled tortilla chips, torn lettuce, meat/bean mixture, shredded cheese, salsa, chopped tomatoes, sour cream). I will stick with my original taco recipe as my family likes it better.
