      Everyone just loved this. I did make it a little smaller and didn't use a whole bottle of dressing and not so many chips. It was wonderful.

      This recipe was a huge success amongst my friends and being such a large salad, I was amazed that it was demolished. I added diced green peppers (pimentos), a tin of drained corn and more tomatoes. I omitted the cabbage and the chips as I was afraid the latter might get soggy. I made it several hours ahead of time and it was perfect when I served it. I mixed the taco seasoning with the ranch dressing and used one full bottle. I served this salad at a mexican dinner party with Awesome Chicken Salsa #34297 and Dessert Enchiladas #81943

      This recipe was close, but would take a lot of tweaking to our taste. I omitted the chips and cheese - too many calories. The taco seasoning added to the ranch dressing was very salty. With the salt in the chips and cheese, we wouldn't have been able to eat it. There has to be a way to spice up the dressing without adding salt - Diane
