Taco Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 19, 2010 at 4:56pm

This isn’t a recipe – just a reminder that when you make tacos, whether with beef, pork, tofu, chicken, or beans, you can make the dish a whole lot lighter, more nutritious, and filling by turning your taco into taco salad. I don’t always do this – sometimes I really want a taco – but…

Toasted breadcrumbs, duh! (Slaps head…) Why do I always forget about them?

In fact, there are…
