    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This salad has plenty of "kick"! if desired add in only 1 teaspoon cumin to the dressing. For even more heat use Hot and Spicy Old El Paso taco mix. If desired place the taco salad on top of tortilla chips instead of mixing them in. This salad will serve four as a main meal or six as a side salad. My taco seasoning mix Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix works well with this recipe!

      Great salad! Easy and quick and hot-weather friendly. Instead of making the dressing as listed, I just mixed the dressing powder and spices into some sour cream and dolloped on top of the salad. I was out of mayo. =D Thanks for sharing!
