Reviews for Fiesta Corn Chip Salad
"I made this for a picnic, was worried it was too heavy for the "light "eaters but it was gone before all the other salads! My future son in law asked to lick the bowl!"
"This is pretty darn good! Couldn't find Chili Cheese Fritos so I just used regular ones and added a bit of chili powder. Also just added the Fritos as a garnish to the top cause I didn't want them to get soggy! Added some Vidalia onion and a few halved cherry tomatoes as well."
"my supervisor made this for our carry in last Friday I ate so much it was s o good. she told me to get it here, it was good however I was sad to see the calorie count Lol! she did use light mayo!"
"My daughter and I loved it."
"I've been making this recipe for years. And have since just tweaked it just a tad. Not much. Normally red bells are more expensive in my neck of the woods, so I usually add small diced green bells, and about a 1/2 tsp of cumin. But as is, the recipe is a keeper. Originally a family friend brought over the dish and that's how it came to be loved by my family. It's soo simple."
