Quick Taco Salad
Don't feel like cooking for hours? This is a quick meal to get on the table in 30 minutes. For a fun twist, substitute the tortilla chips for your favorite flavor of Doritos or Fritos corn chips.
Dovetailing tip: When cutting up the bell peppers, cut one additional pepper into 1 1/2" pieces and save. These will be used for Meal 4, Greek Kabobs.
