    This is a great ratio of ingredients of all the favorites for many dishes with a southwestern flare. It’s not just for tacos.

    This is our favorite salad! We have already made it 3 times, and we still love it!!! And it’s easy to make

    Always a hit at our house! Burst of flavors that can be catered to your tastes. The dressing gets better the longer it sits. The heat fantastically lingers in your mouth after you finish your plate to remind you what a great idea it was to make this dish!!

    Excellent. Dressing was the best part. It's not spicy, so if you like that then just spice it up a bit. Pretty versatile.

    Very filling. I made the dressing without the jalapeños and it was still good.

    Really yummy!! So colourful and yummy. Made SO much food, though! I did about 2/3 of the recipe but easily could have done 1/3 for just the two of us. In the future, I'd do dressing just to our bowls and keep the rest aside because it will keep better for next-day work lunches or dinner if the dressing is added right before eating.
