This recipe turned out better than I expected. I was expecting a normal, boring taco salad - boy was I surprised! I felt like a chef when I tasted what I had made!
I don't cook meat very well, so even something as simple as throwing it in a skillet like this didn't turn out great. However, the taste of the mixture w/o the meat made up for my abilities... or lack of.
I didn't use the mayo mixture for a dressing because it tasted so good w/o it, I didn't see the need for it. I also didn't really like the dressing.
I added taco seasoning to the meat before adding it, and omitted the taco sauce. I also put a dollop of sour cream on top for a little extra taste on some bites. I couldn't find any shredded pepperjack so I used a shredded cheddarjack mix. I didn't use chips in it at all for carb reasons. I also added chopped tomatoes.
I would make this again. Oh, and it tasted great warmed up for lunch. :)
Made this for a girls party this weekend. The salad was great but the dressing was only average. I didn't toss it in, but kept it on the side so people could sample it and choose. Most people chose to forego the dressing as listed in the recipe and instead use ranch dressing.
This recipe was awesome! The bf who never eats salads inhaled it and was super satisfied. I used low fat cheese (and only put the tortilla chips in my bf's portion). The sauce was good and not too overpowering as the salad by itself was pretty flavorful. I will definitely be making this again.
This is an easy low-fat salad that is very tasty.
I added salsa instead of the taco sauce to the dressing and it was fabulous! I would for sure make this again!
I used 700g ground chicken, a can of chickpeas, a can of corn and only 1 1/3 cup mayo.. I fried the chicken in taco seasoning, used a jar of garlic salsa instead of taco sauce, omited the olives and pickles, and kept the lettuce and chips seperate so they stay crisp for leftovers. It was a great combination, the sauce worked wonderfully once everything was put together.
We would give this a 4.5 but that's not an option and it wasn't outstanding enough for a 5. We will definately make this recipe again!
Very tasty way to use that bland ground turkey that we are trying to eat more of! The dressing makes it!
Quite tasty! Half a recipe was more than enough for my family of three. I added some chopped fresh tomatoes. Also, I increased the amount of taco sauce with a little less mayo. Seemed to give it a more taco flavor. Make the dressing to taste. I would also suggest adding the dressing just before serving in order to keep the veggies crisp.
This was very good. I only had a little regular mayo, and used some miracle whip. Even with the combination I only had a cup and a half of mayo and it was WAY too much. Next time I'll use light... and not so much. But all in all it was great and my husband asked to bring it for lunch the next day!!
