You don't need to be a vegetarian to love this colorful, crunchy salad. The beans make it "meaty." I thought this was super quick to make and super yummy to eat! Being lowfat and healthy is an added bonus. I like my cheese, so I sprinkled shredded cheddar on top. If I had cilantro, I would have garnished with that, too..... next time! Thanx!
Wow! How come no one told me how yummy and easy taco salad is?! Breaking one of my own food rules I had never tried taco salad because it looks "funny". I'm glad I finally did though! We used black bean because kidney beans reminded us too much of chili. I forgot the green onions and used diced tomatoes, drained, instead of the romas. Wonderful dish that will be a oft-served one in the summer when it's too hot to cook!

Wow, I thought this salad was terrific! Definitely worth making again. Instead of green chilies I added half a jalapeno (because I forgot to buy the chilies). I also added lime flavored corn tortillas (they were very tasty) and substituted 0% Greek yogurt for the light sour cream. The roma tomatoes at the store didn't look too hot so I substituted grape tomatoes cut in half. I added a bit of monterey jack cheese, kalamata olives and some salsa. Served on top of romaine and radicchio lettuces. Easy to make too! Thanks Brooke:D
