I was looking for a gluten free taco salad and this one hit the mark. I liked the fact it didn't contain meat, but if I wanted, I could add seasoned chicken, ground turkey, or ground beef, to make it more of a meal, than a side dish. I started with Romaine lettuce, used Cholula hot sauce instead of taco seasoning, added both cheddar and monterey jack cheeses, and used my old favorite, Fritos for the chips. The Cholula added a nice kick to the salad and made it extra tasty. If in season, or not too expensive, adding fresh avocado would really add to this dish.
