Taco Salad with Chipotle Lime Avocado Dressing (Paleo + Whole30)

Celebrate Taco Tuesday with my Taco Salad with Chipotle Lime Avocado Dressing, both paleo and Whole30 compliant!  This salad combines two recipes that I never get tired of, my Spicy Taco Meat and my Chipotle Lime Avocado Dressing.  This hearty salad packs a ton of flavor including creamy avocado, chipotle chili powder, fresh cilantro and zesty lime.  I also love adding a few paleo chips for an extra crunch!
