Taco Salad - One of my family's favorite dinners. You can double this recipe if you want to take leftovers for lunch. You don't have to include the kidney beans but I think that they give it that little extra flavor and protein that's needed. My family loves when I buy Fritos for the chips or Ranch Doritoes but you can use whatever your family prefers. Sometimes I make garlic bread to go with this dinner but it's not necessary. Enjoy!
