Everyone at our house loves this taco salad. In spring we look for something light and refreshing on the menu after the heavier comfort food of winter. —Muriel Bertrand, Shoreview, Minnesota
We use this super duper chicken across several meals including tacos, sandwiches, omelets and enchiladas. My little guys love helping measure seasonings. —Karie Houghton, Lynnwood, Washington
I found this recipe in an old school cookbook, and I've taken it to many potlucks since then. The layers look so pretty in a glass bowl. —Sandy Fynaardt, New Sharon, Iowa
If I don't have any tostada shells on hand for this speedy salad, I just heat taco shells, break them in half and lay them flat on the plates. It works just as well. Great Southwest flavor! —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah
I invented this taco salad to make my kids happy. Make it with ground beef, ground turkey or ground chicken and it's equally good. —Betty Nickels, Tampa, Florida
This is a dish I can prepare in fifteen minutes! My husband gave me the secret of using the broiler to cook chicken faster and I discovered the spice blend as I tried to find ways to use this quick cooking technique. It became a very tasty success. —Katie Rankin, Columbus, Ohio
This taco salad has all the flavors, but it’s so much easier to prepare and eat because it’s not served in a shell. If you like spicier food, use medium or hot salsa and add another jalapeno. —Tari Ambler, Shorewood, Illinois
I have loved to cook ever since I was a teenager. I regularly fixed supper during summer vacations so it would be ready when my mom came home from work. One night, I planned a sunflower theme. I made this taco salad and arranged the chips to look like a flower head. Fun! —Holly Joyce, Jackson, Minnesota
