Personal Notes:
If I had taco salad every night of the week, I'd be happy! This is just one version but it's a bare bones recipe that can be added to. Actually, I'm the queen of NON-hot food and love the simple dressing of fresh lemon juice and sea salt for a dressing! (I always win in the "wimp" category in chile cook-offs because I can't take the heat of hot peppers!)
