Taco Salad Tacos Recipe

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

Made this recipe as a salad on a plate without the taco shells. Crumbled a few tortilla chips on top. Even without the Catalina dressing my husband said this recipe is a keeper. This is a good thing because it's hard to find diet friendly recipes to suit him.
