Tonight I wanted to fix something that didn't heat up the house...so I got out my trusty deep fryer and made taco shells...then all I had to do was make the filling...there wasn't a crumb left on my Husbands plate!

Enjoy!

  4. Now, add seasonings, beans, corn, taco sauce and 1/2 cup of dressing. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 5 minutes as flavors blend. Stirring frequently. Taste and see if you desire more seasonings.
  5. Divide lettuce between bowls, depends on how many salads you are making as to how much lettuce is needed.
