Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good I substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream and leave off the cilantro. I put the chips and cheese on the side. I don't want soggy chips or cheese in my leftovers. And my family likes more cheese than I do, so everyone is happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Taco Ranch Pasta Salad Don't know where I first saw the recipe but it was made with Hidden Valley Honey BBQ Ranch, and it was very good. Living in SC in July & August with over 90 degree days with high humidity many times its too warm to go outside to grill. We want something easy and tasty. I threw this together in the morning chilled in refrig, hubby and I devour it in the evening with a nice chilled light red wine. Corn chips were served on the side which we added as we ate not to lose the crunch. Definitely good for pot luck.
