This is a simple make-your-own taco salad. Both my kids, ages six and two, LOVE this! I have made this both with two boneless chicken breasts and beef. Both are a great hit and so easy. I have also used this for Super Bowl party... they LOVED it!

Emily's Dressing for Taco Salad

Dana's Taco Salad

Rating: 4.64 stars
This is my health-oriented twist to my Aunt Linda's recipe. Lentils add fiber and protein without fat and without compromising the taste! For additional texture, sprinkle in some crushed corn chips.

Quick Turkey Taco Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars
This is a great, fast recipe for those nights that you have little time but want a balanced meal. Add beans or olives, if that is what you like. We can't find taco salad shells here, so if you have them where you are, try those. If you don't like raw onions, cook the onions with the ground turkey.

These tortilla bowls are baked, not fried. They're crispy and not as greasy as the deep-fried ones. Just be careful not to burn them trying to get the inside bottom crispy.
