Reviews forFiesta Corn Chip Salad
"Great salad, perfect side for any barbecue. Because I was pressed for time, I used regular corn chips and crushed the chips over the top of the salad right before serving. Next time I'll use the chili cheese chips and mix them into the salad. I could see adding diced jalapenos to this dish too. I will definitely include this salad in my summer side dishes from now on!

"We loved this salad and it was so quick to prepare. Made as is except used red onion, green pepper and regular Fritos as this is what I had in the house - delicious!! I could see playing around with this and possibly adding black beans and some additional seasonings. The recipe as written is a keeper and we will be making it again and again."
"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!"
"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."
"Been making a version of this for years now. I sometimes use half lite sour cream for some that mayo-and for sure use light mayo in the recipe. It's amazing."
