Mini-Pierogies Meet Taco Salad (NAPSA) - Looking for a dinner idea that's easy to make and fun to eat? Taco salad will bring everyone to the dinner table in a hurry!
This version is heartier and tastier than the usual taco salad because it has a surprise ingredient: Mrs. T's 'Rogies. These bite-sized pasta crescents, filled with creamy whipped potatoes, cheese and other good flavors, can be found (along with Mrs. T's full-sized pierogies) among the frozen foods in your supermarket.
