    Toni in Colorado's Note:

    I've been going through my old cookbooks and found this had not been included in my personal cookbook. I think it's different than most taco salads in that it uses a creamed Velveeta cheese and tomatoes with chilies as the dressing instead of the typical French Dressing. Of course, I used Ro-Tel with the cheese and had some left over as a dip for tortilla chips. I also added some pineapple tidbits and sour cream. This is from The Officers Wives Cookbook printed in 1970, submitted by Mrs. James England, England AFB, Louisiana. (I do not know if this is a coincidence with the name or if it was a typo!) I am posting the recipe as it was printed in the OWC printing. As usual, I'm estimating the time to make this!
