"I used to eat this as a kid. If you are on a budget you can substitute sour cream for ranch dressing sitting in the fridge and skip the salsa and olives if you don't care for them as i didn't. It tastes better than this recipe to me."

"If you make this as a "Walking Taco" you can take it hiking. Just put the other ingredients inside a frito chip single serving bag."
