I love anything taco and this easy taco salad recipe is definitely one of my favorites. My best taco soup recipe ever is quite a popular one here on the blog, and it’s definitely my go-to soup recipe during the fall and winter months because it’s just so darn easy to make. Did I mention I like easy recipes, too? But during the summer, I like lighter foods and this easy taco salad recipe is perfect for getting my taco fix without eating such a heavy meal. The great thing about this taco salad is that you can make it with ground beef or turkey, so you can mix this one up a bit depending on what you prefer.
