7 Reviews for 8-Layer Taco Salad

Not Mexican enough

This recipe doesn't have enough heat or spice. If I make it again it will have cumin, onion, garlic, and maybe cilantro. And, maybe add some spice to some other layers. I would also put the chips on the top, so they stay crisp. The avocado yogurt layer is so yummy! I might also add jalapeños. This recipe needs a boost!

Beautiful, easy

This is an excellent makeover for my favorite cuisine. However, I would not put the chips in the salad. The next day..very soggy. Instead crush then on top of the salad as you serve it!

Just like the title it is 8 layered.

I made this salad for work and everyone loved it. I got home and made it again for my husband and thought it was delicious. It is easy, fast and delicious.

Easy, fast and delicious!
Also great as a nacho dip!

This is a fantastic recipe. We added some onion to it and paired it with blue corn tortilla chips and used it as a dip.

Best Taco Salad Ever!

I have made this salad twice now and both times it was a huge hit with my husband and I. Used black beans and a mango/peach salsa. The avocado/Greek yogurt mixture is brilliant. Will definitely be a keeper in our family.
