Taco Salad *****
This is the best taco salad I have ever eaten. When I need a salad for an event, this is what I take. Of course, when you think of salad most women think pasta salad, but most men want something a little more meaty..... taco salad. I start with 2 to 3 pounds of my secret ingredient, turkey, but don't tell anyone. Brown the meat and drain. Add 1 packet of Taco Bell taco seasoning, 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of Kraft French dressing, fat free. You can add more water if necessary but you don't want to much liquid. Make a large salad on a platter and pour the meat over the top. The original recipe called for a bag of tortilla chips, crushed and stirred into the meat and it is wonderful, you may want to add more liquid if adding chips. That is how I prepare it for the bigger events but for every day tacos I will skip the salty, fatty, delicious chips. Top it with cheese and dig in, it is muy bueno.
