In Wexford, Pennsylvania, Ruth Carter relies on this hearty salad for a quick dinner on busy workdays. “My husband likes the spicy Southwestern flavor and it’s a favorite of mine, too.” TIP: Try serving this flavorful twist on taco salad rolled up in a flour tortilla topped with guacamole, chopped fresh tomatoes and diced sweet onions.

"This was pretty good. A bit on the mild side. I think next time, instead of the tomato juice, I will make sure to have V-8 on hand or even snappy tom. Needs more chilli powder for my taste, or a shake or 2 of tobasco. but over all, a good starter recipe to work off of and make your own. I also added some sliced avocado on the side."
