This was really good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written except I did not use the corn - I do not like corn in my salads. I cooked up a pound of grass-fed ground beef and seasoned it with red pepper, minced onion, a minced jalapeno and recipe#76616, and added that to the tops of our salads before the dressing - we needed the extra protein as we had this as a post-workout meal. Very tasty and since this uses so many ingredients that I would normally have on hand any day to the week, it's a quick and healthy dinner for a weeknight. Thanks for posting morgainegeiser - made for the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys and ZWT8 Family Picks - recipe from the Mex/SW/TexMex APCB.
