Mexican Salad

Whenever we go to a potluck I seem to bring fruit or some sort of salad.  EVERY time I make this salad we come home with an empty bowl, it is always a huge hit! 


1 head iceberg lettuce
1 head leaf lettuce
3/4 c. red onion, minced
1 (4 oz.) can Ortega Chilies, diced
1 (3 1/2 to 5 oz.) can pitted black olives, sliced
6-8 radishes, chopped fine
Avocado slices (optional)
1 med. can "Mexican Style" stewed tomatoes, drained
1/2 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated
Med. bottle of Ranch dressing
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. coriander
1/2 tsp. cumin powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 lb. corn chips, broken

Chop lettuces into bite-size pieces. Add onion, chilies, olives, radishes, avocado, tomatoes and cheese.

In a separate bowl, mix Ranch dressing, chili powder, coriander, cumin powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Stir well and mix into the salad. Just before serving top with corn chips.



Coming home from a potluck with requests for a recipe and an empty bowl works for me!
