Taco salads are often served in a fried-tortilla fashioned into a bowl, which really distorts their nutritional information. In their purest form, however, taco salads are nothing more than seasoned meat, lettuce, black beans, and cheese. This recipe is a perfect example of how a taco salad should be made.
