  • Just wondering…how many meals does this actually make? Will it really last you all month. I’m new to this and want to give it a try. Thanks for your help!

  • This meal serves 4-6. You can certainly make enough meals to last all month. When our group meets we make about 15 meals and they last almost 2 months b/c we do not eat them every night.

  • This looks really yummy! My husband keeps asking me to make taco salad, but I’ve been hesitant because we’re trying to eat healthier. The kind he wants is similar to what restaurants make with the fried shell and greasy beans and meat. All the ingredients listed in this taco salad are things he would readily eat and enjoy. Thanks! 🙂
