  1. I made this today for our 4th of July party. Makes such a huge salad that I cut it in half (the cornbread made with green chiles that you don't use are great as a snack or with a salad). A favorite with my sisters and myself!!
  2. Love this salad, used left over Recipe #57131, and Recipe #172900. Put two slices bacon on top with green onion and tomato.
  3. Very good! I used left over corn bread and added 1/3 cup of salsa on top of the tomatoes.
  4. I served this for Christmas dinner with fish tacos. It didn't go over very well. I thought it was okay but the sour cream/mayo part seemed to be a bit too much in quantity. I had tons left over even though I only made half the dish.
  5. Oh my! Oh my! Wasn't sure what my kids would think of this, but both hubby and kids LOVED this. I actually served it warm and it is just as good. Would be fun with a layer of greens as someone suggested. It's a keeper!


  1. I CAN'T STOP EATING THIS!!! Wow! I monkeyed with this to use some extras. I used a can of black beans and a can of black-eyed peas instead of the pinto beans, 1/2 c. bacon bits (divided in 2 portions) instead of the bacon, halved grape tomatoes instead of chopped large tomatoes. I also skipped the green pepper (and used extra bacon) to accommodate hubby. This is wonderful! I will make it again and again and again. It will also go on my "for company" list - great appearance. THANKS!
