I really liked this. It was a "different" type of salad for us. I followed the recipe other then I used a pound of hamburger. This was very tasty and easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe Sharon!

Yummy Taco salad! I made it using ground Turkey, didn't add the rice used black beans instead & used Mexican cheese blend.I am going to try it with the rice-a-roni, sounds good. Thank you Sharon!

Good recipe...we really kicked up the spices tho, adding extra chili powder and salsa. Served it with some Ranch dressing and homemade chips!
