    Bekah49036's Note:

    I love taco salad but I hate buying those packets of taco seasoning from the store. Half the ingredients are things I can't even pronounce and the other half are spices that almost everyone keeps in the pantry. After tweaking this recipe a bit, I think I found the perfect balance of sweet with a gentle heat. I prefer to use lean ground pork but beef would work just fine. Just make sure you drain the extra grease.

      This made us a very nice lunch today. I did make a few modifications. I used 1 tablespoon of butter and I drained off the grease of the pork. I used 3/4 cup of the catalina dressing. Next time I think I would add fritos instead of the nacho chips. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
