I don’t claim this taco salad to be authentically Mexican, but I do claim it to be genuinely delicious. Great for groups, kids, or even a weekday dinner at home, this dish was a favorite of mine all growing up, and is now a favorite of my own family. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and will be requested again and again.
Yum. My aunt passed down a taco salad that is almost identical. But her recipe includes a can of “ranch style” beans. The can with the black label on the shelf. Instead of thousand island, it uses Wishbone Russian dressing. Have it made/had it forever, since it literally feeds 20 people. Looks like I can cut this recipe down more easily, so thank you!
This looks delicious! Do you have any vegetarian dishes that you could share too? My daughter recently cut meat from her diet and I’m struggling to find meals for our family.
I just had flashbacks to eating this as a child. I am not sure how i forgot about it, but I can’t wait to make it for my family. Its soooo good!
I never would’ve thought to try this with thousand island dressing! I eat a similar one and use Hidden Valleys “Southwest Chipotle” and its amaziinggg! Not spicy at all either ????
I grew up eating a similar version and boy is it delish! The Thousand Island dressing is what makes this recipe!
My mom makes something similar but with taco or nacho cheese doritos! Yum!
Love the recipes Chris shares!
I love the addition of zucchini – can’t wait to try!
OK – in the items lists, you have ” 10 oz bag romaine lettuce preached and cut”. So, what does “preached” mean, in cooking terms?
And, do you have a recipe for thousand island dressing or do you use a bottled version? Thanks..
But Julia can’t eat this because of her dietary restrictions right? Funny having a recipe on Chris Loves Julia that Julia can’t eat…
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
