Makes: 20-25 servings Total Time: 20 min
Category: Salads Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 2 med tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cups Kraft Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 can chili hot beans (do not drain)
  • 1 bag nacho cheese tortilla chips, finely crushed
make it
Cut lettuce into salad sized pieces and put in bowl large enough to toss all ingredients.

Dice tomatoes and onions and add to lettuce. Add cheese. Add chili hot beans with all of the sauce as this becomes the "dressing". Toss ingredients until well mixed and coated with sauce from beans.

Add finely crushed nacho cheese chips and toss again. Serve immediately.
This has always been a HUGE favorite at carry in dinners at church and is fast and easy to prepare. If you are taking it to a function you can cut up the vegetables and put them in individual zipper seal bags. Take the can of beans (don't forget the can opener!) and bag of shredded cheese. Poke a very small hole in the bag of chips to let air escape and crush them ahead of time. This salad can be assembled in a few minutes and be crunchy and fresh.
