You could take a taco kit to work for lunch, but itâ€™s likely more trouble than itâ€™s worth.Â The solution is a taco salad which, ironically, is made with chili. Â A lot of places with salad bars (delis, supermarkets) have soups during lunchtime, and they often have chili.Â Bring a salad of the leftovers from your taco dinner, including leftover chicken.Â Pour a small serving of chili over the salad, top with yogurt & a little cheese, pick up some tortilla chips & enjoy a great lunch.
