I served this with a Mexican-style vegetable soup and grapes. Then I served this salad in a BIG bowl. I told DH that this is all we're having. He looked at it and said, where's the rest of the meal? Then he started eating, and after a few bites said, this is good. You can make this again. This is one of the best salads I've ever had. These are the things I changed. I used soy crumbles and added onion poweder, garlic powder, chili powder, and a little cumin instead of the packet mix. I bet ground turkey would be good, too. I added chopped cucumber, and used chopped sweet onions and romaine lettuce. For the tortilla chips, we used Tangos blue corn & berries. The flavors melded together perfectly. The Green Goddess dressing was perfect. (Found it at Walmart) Thank you, Caroline, for an enjoyable meal.
I use salt-free (when I can get them) tortilla chips. If not, low salt. never tried nacho chips. But, with the shredded cheese, can't see any reason to use nacho chips. You can always add a few drops of jalapeno juice, if you like extra heat. Always got lots of praise at potlucks with a big bowl of this stuff!
Love this recipe! I use Romaine lettuce instead of iceberg, though.
YUMMY! Easy and quick. The secret ingredient makes it special.
I liked the Green Goddess dressing (first time we have had it), but husband had ranch instead (as he didn't care for the GG). Used black beans instead of kidney just because that was what was in the pantry. Very good!
We always make the same recipe w/ Catalina- I LOVE Green Goddess- will give this a try- I know it will be awesome !
Awesome recipe! The Green Goddess dressing gave the taco salad such a good flavor, and I used ground sirloin instead of regular ground beef. My family really enjoyed this meal! Thank you for sharing Caroline!
Tried this at a potluck and was pleasantly surprised, have made it myself at family get togethers and it goes very quickly. I doubled the recipe and used a mixture of Green Goddess and Catalina, dressings, muy bueno! Thanks for posting this!
This was a great salad. I used black beans instead of kidney beans and added corn. I will definitely make it again. Thanks! Cathie
