My mom has made this taco salad since I was a little girl. It is always the first to go at potlucks, family reunions or any gathering. It disappears fast when I make it for my family's dinner and my kids request for their birthday dinners too. It's a favorite all the way around and everyone is surprised the recipe is so easy.
