This was a really yummy version of taco salad. And definitely lower in calories since it didn't have any deep fried chips/shell. I did use some Tortilla Factory Smart and Delicious Tortillas (found at Costco) with this salad and it didn't seem like they were really needed. It would have been a super filling dinner without the tortillas.
I enjoyed the salad. The rest of my family seemed to enjoy it also. My 4 year old ate it, so that is always a good test! :) It was not too spicy (I did not use jalapenos) and I liked that it wasn't super cold. This would be a great meal for the summertime, too. It did take a little bit of prep time to chop all the vegetables, but other than that it actually was much quicker than I thought it would be. I think it only took about half an hour from start to finish.
I will definitely be making this recipe again! :)
