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!

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.
