Surprisingly Superb Weeknight Taco Salad
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
4 servings
I re-invented the wheel here. I looked at the taco salad in my favorite Mexican restaurant and thought I could make a simpler, healthier, more flavorful version at home. I was also determined to come up with something that is fairly quick to make, especially if you enlist a little help from the rest of the peanut gallery!
