I first tried this salad at a friend of mines wedding shower. It is so tasty and amazingly easy to make. I make it often the night before I go to a BBQ or potluck dinner/lunch. The nice thing about this recipe is you can add however much of what you want, to get the taste that you are looking for. Hope you enjoy.

This is a great salad, but I will admit, I like mine hot, served on a bed of mixed greens. Love the addition of the beans to the taco salad.
