    I've never heard of this recipe before. It looks very appealing and easy to make. Definitely on my "to try" list, as soon as I find the courage to try and make tacos at home, since I don't think they sell them where I live.

    This looks really good. Years ago when my kids were young I use to make something like this. It's one of those easy recipes and dinners on the table in no time.

    CraftytotheCore, I will have to remember the Cabot shredded cheese as I am also lactose intolerance (not severely, but I have to take allergy meds for it). So thanks much!

    And if you try this recipe, I sure hope you and the family enjoy :)

    This looks amazing and delicious. I make a gluten-free taco salad just about every week for my family. I use ground turkey and I buy the soy free and gluten free taco shells at Big Y supermarket. This variation looks even better. My son has lactose intolerance so I buy the Cabot shredded cheese in a bag with 0% lactose. I could easily make this for my family next time it's taco night!
