Easy Salsa Taco Salad
If you are taking this to a potluck or to a football party, you may want to use this container. It would snap shut and travel well. If you are serving it at home, any decorative bowl will do. (This wooden bowl is beautiful!) Simply mix up the ingredients and you have a taco salad.
The salsa is up to you. You can use store bought salsa or you can make a homemade salsa. Homemade salsa is delicious but there is plenty of store bought that are tasty as well. Here is a recipe for homemade salsa.
Trade out black beans for chili beans if you would like and add shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese if desired. I didn't add cheese to my salad because of the cheese Doritos. Either way was, and would be, delicious.
Enjoy this easy taco salad. So delicious and simple. Fresh and refreshing. And it is another way to eat tacos. How could that be wrong?? ;-)
