Tasty Layered Taco Salad Recipe

This colorful and attractive salad looks very appealing when layered in a trifle dish. It can be used as a main dish or side. I've even served it at potlucks.

Well liked by everyone. I made each person their own bowl, considering their preferences (cheese type and salsa heat).

when i first made this recipe, my husband thought i made to much. as it turned out i barely made enough. it is so good, he almost ate the whole bowl himself. also, i made mine with ground turkey.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2010

This was the best taco salad we have ever had. It is a lot like a glorified 7-layer dip. The only thing to note is that it makes a lot, and is not nearly as good the second day because you can't really re-heat the meat separately and the lettuce gets soggy. I would recommend cutting it down to the number of servings you need, or invite people over to help you eat it when it's fresh. Other than that, it was fantastic! We will definitely make it again.
