meaty taco salad

May 19, 2011


I am in the midst of putting together a compilation on recipes that are ‘quick & easy’ for busy families, people on-the-go, as well as those who work and get home late!  Basically EVERYONE…LOL!  This recipe requires little explanation, but definitely delivers, with a mouth-watering punch of flavour and total satisfaction.  We love to make this dish.  It is totally in our weekly rotation and every time we whip it up, we play around with it a little bit, to create different variations.  Try it out and make it this weekend!

Quick – adjective

1. done, proceeding, or occurring with promptness or rapidity, as an action, process, etc.; prompt; immediate: a quick response.

Easy – adjective
