  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spiral pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground beef. Cook and stir until beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir taco seasoning into beef mixture; cool.
  3. Stir beef mixture into pasta; toss lettuce, tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, onion, French dressing, and corn chips into pasta mixture. Top with sour cream.

I made a lower fat version that my family loved! We used lean ground beef, reduced fat sour cream, lite french dressing, and lower fat cheese, and substituted tortilla chips for corn chips. The ...

Used ground turkey, Chicken Taco seasoning packet & added sweet corn kernels. Also added sliced black olives. Forgot the corn chips and didn't miss them. It was so good! Will definitely make ...

Made with ground turkey and couldn't tell the difference (well, definitely less grease when cooking up). Use the scoop-able sized corn chips and serve chips on side. Great salad option that I'll...
