Taco Salad ala Trader Joes Ingredients

Introduction

I love Taco salad, so I made this layered salad that has a lot of flavor. You can omit the lettuce and tomatoes and have the rest of it as a dip if you'd like.

In the picture, my family was going to be late for dinner, so I didn't want my chips to get soggy, otherwise layer them on the bottom.
