Epic Taco Salad

An epic taco salad featuring kale and avocado

"For something light and fresh try creating your own taco salad. Start with Hormel® Taco Meats™, which are all natural and pre-cooked, and add your favorite seasonal vegetables. I added one of our favorite grains, quinoa, which gives an extra boost of protein, and avocado for a healthy fat. This salad is packed with nutrients and full of flavor." – Chef Angela Sellers

Taco Salad Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Taco Salad Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
