This incredible taco salad is the second part of a favorite “make once have twice” meal–this time using the beef taco recipe previously posted. The mix of ingredients is what makes this dish extra special; these include good quality olives and fresh avocado. For a low-starch or low-carb version sprinkle just a few tortilla chips on or go without. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do, and cheers to another super easy meal!
