Here's a recipe that makes a nice presentation for a quick Mexican flavored chicken salad.

I couldn't find the dinner kit, so I made these with my mini tortilla shell baskets. I used 2 cans of chicken, about 1/2 bottle of taco sauce, 3-4 dashes of Tabasco, and about 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning mix. Next time I would increase the taco seasoning mix. These were cute little individual salads that were just about right for 3 people.
