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. :)



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!
