***UPDATE*** As most of y’all know, El Conquistador and I are divorced and have been for many years now. That being said, I absolutely still love his Mama and this recipe.

Well as most of y’all know we call my husband “El Conquistador” (ok truthfully he named himself that and it just kind of stuck LOL).

Well, there are certain things that he grew up with that he absolutely loves, much like the rest of us. So for the last 11 years when he would talk about some sort of food or meal that he had in his youth, I will call his Mama and ask her for the recipe or how to make it.

That is how this Taco Salad recipe came about!

As his Mama tells it, this was just something she mixed up for PTA luncheons, big family get-togethers, cookouts, or just for a quick family dinner. She can’t figure out what is so special about it but says that everyone always wanted her to make it.

El Conquistador actually likes this the day after it is made. He likes the way the corn chips soak up the dressing and get a bit soft.

Enjoy!!

Make it a great day!!!
