Happy Tasty Tuesday! 
Well, maybe not so "happy" right now. Today is the first day of school and I am sad for two reasons: One, summer is officially over (waaaaaaahh) and two, not only is it the first day of school, but it is my last first day of school. Meaning, I am growing up and gettin old! One more year and I will be a BYU graduate! Scary how time flies...

Well, enough of the sad and on to the tasty! Today I'm sharing with you a DELICIOUS taco salad recipe. I'm not kidding guys, my mouth was literally watering when I was writing this/posting the pictures. What I love about this recipe is that it's super easy to make! I must have made it at least 10 times last month (just kidding, I don't know the exact number of times I made it but it's a lot)!
