My mother gave me this recipe several years ago, and we have prepared it often ever since. It can be a meal in itself...or serve it along with a Mexican meal. I often take it to potlucks and watch it disappear in no time!

"My husband and I enjoyed this salad. When the garden is producing lots of lettuce, I usually make traditional 7-Layer salad; however, I was looking for something a little different and this was perfect!"

"I made it just as it was written and we really liked it and it was so quick and easy and a good meatless meal with a good amount of fiber!"

"I served this for a family soup and salad get together. Fritos that were on top did soften a bit, but adding additional Fritos when served as a leftover just adds an additional layer of crunch! Not boring and not too spicy for the kids."

"Served as the main course. My husband works construction so when he comes home for dinner he wants something that will "stick to your ribs". This salad did that."
