My family has always made it with fritos, dennisons chili, grated cheddar, lettuce and tomato... but it didn't occur to me until I was at least adult aged that those ingredients don't even resemble a taco. Awesome together, yes; but taco, no. Now I'm embarrassed to call it taco salad even though that's what I've always called it!
2. What should I call this fritos/chili/cheese concoction if not taco salad?
