Because its Friday, summer and fairly hot I thought I’d pass along a super easy recipe for taco salad. Hubby even likes this (I know some men do not consider salad a meal by itself). This recipe is really easy and very hearty…you could have extra tortilla chips and maybe heat up a jar of queso if you worry it won’t be substantial enough for super hungry in your home.
You can also use this for a ladies lunch if your friend’s enjoy Mexican food. It’s not too spicy but does have a little kick if you add spicy salsa. Guacamole is a wonderful addition to this salad, as is sour cream. This is a good basic salad with plenty of room for you to use your imagination.
Enjoy and have a wonderful mid-July weekend.
