Fast & Easy Dinner: Layered Taco Salad

This vegetarian version is served layered in a glass dish, almost like a trifle. The presentation is mouth-watering and the salad is delicious. The dressing is an interesting mix of guacamole, sour cream, and chili powder. Serve this salad with your favorite tortilla chips and cold Coronas. If you want the recipe,
