This is such a good salad, I've made it several times. I use pinto beans instead of kidney bc pinto seems more authentic Mexican, though I suspect they eat kidney beans in Mexico. I serve it like haystacks, chips on bottom, layer of lettuce, then this plus cheese. When I mixed it all together it was hard to judge how much lettuce to add making it too dry. Plus if you have leftovers you don't have to worry about soggy chips or lettuce. Very good the second day too.
Yummy quick salad. I used beef chili and a Mexican blend cheese. Thanks for sharing ShaniRage. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
