My neighbor had these salads waiting for my family and I after a long trip.
She is too sweet!
The salad is delicious,she said she found the recipe on She said she bought the tortilla shells already made into cups. She had all the optional toppings in individual containers so we just put whatever we wanted on our salads. She made the best guacamole too! She says she'll have to figure out the amounts since she just put a little of this and that without measuring. It was so creamy,she says she put a little milk in it! never heard of that but it was GOOD!
