Best of all it is a quick and easy dish to make. From the time I walk into the kitchen until I have cleaned up and am ready to leave is about 20 minutes. Admittedly, the cooking takes hours, but not prep. And finally, the smell of the cooking chili is it’s own special treat! (more…)

Taco Salad is a big favorite around our house. We have sampled versions of Taco Salad in lots of restaurants; we like ours best.
