we love this sauce in many dishes from taco's to soups to casseroles and also in dips . i have even used them over chicken in a fry pan with more onions, green peppers and celery . and then serve it over rice or noodles ,

It is delicious. We tried it before we put in the lettuce and we also tried it with different chips. But we will add lettuce and tortilla chip later.

I added black olives (diced), green onion (diced), sharp cheddar cheese, ground chuck - not round, dash of taco seasoning, and topped off with sour cream. I also prefer iceberg lettuce to romaine. You can also use a grated Mexican blend cheese.
