    Easy! Make your taco meat ahead of time with hamburger or turkey,(Durkee's mix or similar works well) then heat it up just before serving in a bowl...I seperate all the ingredients so everyone can 'build their own' taco salad the way they like it..its like a buffet.

    Seperate bowls of : salad mix, cheese, onions, bell peppers, black or red beans, corn chips or Fritos, black olives, whatever veggies you like in tacos.

    Some like Catalina dressing, I like Ranch dressings and some pico and salsa. Yum.

    Mix cooked, drained hamburger meat with taco seasoning. Stir. Mix in Mexican blend cheese. Stir. Put two packages of 8 or 12 oz cresant rolls (can't remember which, but the smallest ones) in a circle, so it looks like a big sun (b/c of the cresant is in the shape of a triangle). Put hamburger/cheese mix in center of ring, and roll it up (should look like a big O). Cook according to directions on cresant roll pkg. Get sour cream, lettuce, salsa, etc to flavor. Hope you don't screw it up b/c of my bad directions (haven't made it in a while)

    Here is a taco salad we make a lot for family gatherings & stuff:
    Make your hamburger with taco seasoning just like you would normally do for tacos, then let it cool. In a large bowl combine chopped lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper, any other veggies you like, and crushed up nacho cheese doritos. Add the taco meat and just enough Western salad dressing to cover it all - enjoy!!

    If you are going to keep it in the fridge, keep the veggies and meat in separate bowls so it doesn't get soggy - when you are ready to have some just combine the meat, veggies and add the dressing! Yum!

    This isn't actually a taco salad, more of a dip, but it's delicious just the same.

    Grab a glass casserole dish
    Spread cream cheese on the bottom, about 1cm thick
    Spread a can of ready-made meat or vegetarian chili on top
    Cover with shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese
    Bake at 350 until the cheese melts
    Serve warm with tortilla chips or scoopable Fritos

    You can use really spicy chili, add salsa to the chili, or use Mexican or jalepeno cheese if you want more of a kick.
