Fiesta Salad

My yummy Fiesta Salad can be made into so many variation's

Salad's of this kind is nothing new to many of us, however I have added an ingredient to the base sauce that not only taste good, it bumps up the nutritional value, and saves a little money due to cutting back on the amount meat and substituting with a veggie.
The toppings of course are endless to my fiesta salad and you can add
tomatoes  corn  beans  cilantro  onions
shredded cheese   jalapenos  sour cream
 the list is endless
One thing I would not skip on is the crushed tortilla chips. They serve as a nice crunchy element to the salad.
We don't use a specific dressing with this either. By the time we add our salsa & sour cream it is enough for a nice dressing to the salad. But that's your choice as well.
