Personal Notes:
Jennifer made this for Gordon for their second date, and she
has yet to cook anything he prefers. (This is meant to reflect
the excellence of the taco salad, not Jennifer's cooking skill.)
Replace beef with refried beans or other meat substitute to
make vegetarian.
This dish is ideal for a casual meal because people can
combine the components in the proportions they prefer, and
it's fun to eat!
