I had never had or heard of Taco Salad in the 1970's when a friend prepared this for a girl's gathering. I instantly loved it and prepared it for my family. I have adjusted it to our taste and you can do the same for your's.
You could also put all the ingredients on the side and let everyone put what they like in their salad.
I hope you and your loved ones like this as much as we do. Enjoy!
