    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
