Reviews for Family-Favorite Taco Salad
"It's quick and easy and healthy. My kids love it. It's something different without having to use taco shells. I make it every other month."
"Our family did not care for the seasoning blend, however, I would recommend others try this recipe to see if it works for them, since it is easy and healthy. I will try this recipe again, but will try taco seasoning, instead."
"This recipe was great because it took no time at all to make. The flavors were yummy and it was nice to not use a tortilla shell and save some calories."
"Tasty! I altered the spices to more closely resemble my own homemade taco seasoning, just as a personal preference. We also threw some diced avocado, scallions and crushed tortilla chips on top with a squirt of lime, and that made this a hearty meal."
"I made this recipe adding some crunched up tortilla chips and everyone in my family love it!! This recipe is definitely going into my recipe box--it's easy and delicious!! A nice and light dinner for summertime!! Thank you to the creator!!"
