I love taco salad. I have put a different spin on it and I can't eat it any other way now. I use Frito's or generic corn chips instead of tortilla chips , I also use cumin instead of taco seasoning because I like the taste better and it is not as salty as the taco seasoning in a pkg. For topping instead of using taco sauce or salsa I use French dressing for a unique and different taste.This recipe is different, simple and delicious. Hope you love it too
