Layered Taco Salad Plus a Mexican Black Beans Recipe! So cute to take to any party!

If you have seen very many of our posts you know that we are definitely salad lovers! We love everything from Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta and Super Food Wilted Salad to Last Minute Potato and Greek Quinoa Salads. However one we haven’t shared yet is our adorable Layered Taco Salad.

Layered salads are perfect party food! They are easy to throw together, can be made ahead of time and look very classy. We decided to add a twist and layer them into glass cups for individual servings. So cute! Individual cups are very portable and will be the talk of the party! If you like you can use pint size Mason Jars or a layering bowl works great of course too if you like it better.

Taco Salad shows up frequently on our table because it is so quick and easy. We try to always have beans and quinoa that we cooked in the Pressure Cooker on hand which means this meal takes maybe ten minutes tops. Can’t beat that right? We are sharing our recipe for Mexican Black Beans as well. They are seriously divine! You could just grab a bowl and eat them as is. They are that good!

There are no real measurements or set rules for this recipe (that is one of the joys). Layer as much as you like of whatever ingredients sound good to you. If you don’t have certain ingredients on hand you can leave them out. Or if you want to add something just layer it right on. It’s totally up to personal preference which makes it even more fun and easy!

As always we suggest using organic ingredients. 🙂
