      This is a great recipe, Rita! It is avocado season on Guam so I'm always looking for new ways to use avocado instead of the standard guacamole. I cut thin slices of a corn tortilla, fried them until crisp then sprinkled them with sea salt and ancho chili powder then added this layer before the dressing. I used the Jalapeno Tequila Green Hot Sauce from Blair's Heat Collection. I served this with grilled chicken breasts and my DH ended up dicing his chicken and adding it to the salad. Thanks for posting!

      Unfortunately I don't own a trifle bowl or similar but I did use all the ingredients
      and layered them in rows on a platter. Very pretty presentation!
      Made fresh salsa and this is not only very satisfying and pretty salad but healthy, too!
      I replaced some of the black beans with kidney beans and garbanzos. Fresh cotija from
      a local source. Reviewed for Veg Tag/February.

      This was a great salad for a potluck. It looked fantastic and the addition of the avocado and salsa verde gave it a different(and tasty) spin from the usual layered salads. Will definitely make again.
