"Liked this very much. Next time I would only make half the dressing as it made quite a bit and we didn't use it all."

" Hi Recipe-Bot, You sound like a sweet teen, I really like the idea you give here. Hubby & I love anything taco...I bet you end up as a chef somewhere good when you grow up.  One of our Grandson's  16yrs old loves to cook & he really is good and picks up recipes really fast.Yes
