Chicken Taco Salad

(stock photo) Chicken taco salads are a staple in our house!   You can serve these in any bowl but I love using my tortilla bowl makers for this. I no longer purchase frozen chicken.  It’s a waste of money. Kroger has fresh, juicy chicken breast at the meat/seafood dept for just $1.99 a pound. For…
