Chicken tacos/Taco Salad

This is a meal that gets made (in various forms) a LOT in our house because everyone can use the fixins to make what they like. Pics above show G's soft-shell tacos plus nachos; my taco salad (plus margarita); C's hard shell taco and mixed chip dip

Here's the things I made (plus a listing of things I often make, but didn't tonight)

chicken breast, marinated in McCormick's Southwestern Seasoning and then grilled
refried beans (from a can)
shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
chopped onion
shredded cheese
sour cream
Pace picante sauce
Tostitos queso sauce
flour tortillas
crisp taco shells
plain tortilla chips

(this is the quick meal, taking less than half an hour from start to finish--plus time to marinate)

more involved items:
cilantro lime rice
homemade pico de gallo
homemade salsa verde
black olives

We have meals like this -- generally they're real crowd-pleasers. Good for heat, too!
