    I used Garbanzo beans instead of Kidney Beans. Very refreshing and light. We love it. - 6/10/12

    Tried turkey in it and didn't care for it at all. However, lean hamburger or chicken breast is something that we love in our taco salads. The red kidney beans are awesome in it! Rating based on the turkey part of the recipe. - 6/10/12

    This was great, but I made a few alterations. I used black beans, instead of kidney (which are not my favorite), and sauted the bell peppers and onions. As additional toppings, I had lowfat yogurt, and avocado- yum. I think you could have done without turkey, and it still would have been delish. - 8/21/12

    Make w/Chef Meg's Taco seasoning, or just use chili powder. Can sub black beans for kidney beans. Can sub buffalo meat for turkey. - 7/18/14
