Recipe by HeidiSue
Austin's is a great local restaurant here in Reno and Lake Tahoe. I have not made this salad, but have eaten it there many times and it is wonderful. The recipe comes from Austin's in a cookbook called "In Good Taste". A great way to use up your left over chili.

This is so good! I used leftover chili and this went together in about 10 minutes. The combination of the salad ingredients and the chili was excellent. Now I don't have to order Taco Salads anymore, I can make them at home. Thanks HeidiSue for a keeper that I'll repeat often.
