This is a hit at all the summer parties.
I made this for a July 4 family picnic. It was a hit! I added a can of corn, drained and 1 lb hamburger seasoned with 1 packet of taco seasoning. Otherwise, followed the recipe. I am making it again for a carry-in a work tomorrow!
great for a potluck!
looks good....does not taste so good.
My family wasn't that crazy about it. It was better when I added more Sour cream and Salsa
EASY to increase or decrease! I used fat free youghurt With fresh mashed avacados and some salt free Tex Mex seasonings instead of the sour cream. Made salt free fresh tomatoe salsa with cilantro and made my own 'baked' chips from fresh masa, mashed them, cooked on the comal then sliced and microwaved them in one of those chip holders until crisp so I could contol the sodium content. I sliced left over grilled chicken breast to UP the protien content. So it took a bit longer to make but this is a great idea for to incorporate all sorts of ethnic flavors to a summer low fat low salt salad! I can put this in the fridge thenhang a tag on the door....... lunch inside - serve yourself.....
Great for social functions!!!
Good & easy to make. I used Kraft's Mexican blend shredded cheese, and added lime juice to the sour cream and salsa.
I made this for a New Year's Eve party and it was a nice complement to our Mexican food theme. It was a lot lighter than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise. The flavor, with just the sour cream and salsa, could have had more of a kick to it. I admit it was a bit bland. Although, I really enjoyed the combo of the differnt texture of the ingredients; crisp lettuce, softer beans, crunchy corn chips on top. I would probably make this again, but definitely add some more spice to it to add more flavor. Maybe use a taco seasoning in the sour cream instead or in addition to the salsa....hmmmm...that sounds good! :)
Substituted ground chicken for ground beef. Also used olives
