I know everyone has their own taco salad recipe, but wanted to post my own.
Every summer my kids would beg to have this for dinner.
I think they would have ate it every night if it was possible.

I was given this recipe by "Manny and Dale". A wonderful couple that died in a tragic accident many years ago.
