    I like to use a 100 calorie dorita chip bag, crush it up and add to the taco salad-no shell - this saves calories and still gives the crunch. - 1/3/10

    I do mine sometimes without a shell to save on calories and carbs, just load up my plate with lettuce. Its a nice quick refreshing dinner ot make in the summer time. - 6/29/09

    There are a million great variations of this. It tastes great without the added chips. Throw in more fresh veggies to add crunch. We skip the sour cream and just use salsa as a dressing. Sliced avocado adds a nice touch. - 7/27/09

    Good recipe- I always brown my ground beef then rinse it in a collander before adding the spice packets. This rinses away extra fat. - 1/28/10

    I make a similar salad but use romaine lettuce, black beans, and veggie grounds instead of meat. Also use Pace Picante (medium) and low fat sour cream, low fat cheese, and throw in 1/2 avocado (guac made with lime juice, salt, and minced garlic). Of course you have to add some Chalula or Tapatio! - 1/13/10

    This is good. But I also use my own spices to reduce sodium. If you want to make it healther to can use fresh herbs and spices as well as using baby spinch or greens instead of lettuce. When I do use the shell usually 1 is enough. But its a family fav, because every one can change it a little - 1/11/10

    I make a taco salad similar to this recipe but with ground turkey instead of beef, and I use my own seasonings (chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin and cayenne pepper) to keep the salt low. I also use Kraft fat free cheddar cheese and add some fresh corn (cut off the cob or frozen). - 8/22/10
