Cellars Market Taco Salad


In keeping with our Mexican food (we have had Mexican food every night this week but 1), I wanted to make a taco salad.  While I really like this healthy taco salad from Men's health, some times you just want a comfort food taco salad.  There is a place that my colleagues and I go occasionally called Cellars Market at the Chicago Board of Trade.  They have a lot of great salads, but our favorite is their Taco Salad.  It brings me back to the ones my mom used to make growing up.  It was pretty much the only salad I liked for a while.  So this is a combo of my mom's and the one from Cellars market since I didn't have a 'recipe' for either one.  It turned out very tasty, filling, and the best part - EASY.
