This big meal salad is loaded with beans, chilies, tomatoes, cheese, and tortilla chips and tossed with a creamy, spicy guacamole dressing. With all these flavors and textures, this salad is sure to satisfy your taste buds. In the Southwest, Mexican food is the most popular cuisine. A bag of tortilla chips and a jar of salsa are basic staples found in everyone’s refrigerators and cupboards.
Mix, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, bell pepper, beans, corn and chili powder in a salad bowl. Toss salad with guacamole dressing; let salad sit 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and tortilla chips and serve. Pass extra dressing.
For the dressing:
In an electric blender or food processor, blend water, lemon juice, onion, avocado, garlic, chili, cilantro leaves, oil, and salt until smooth and creamy. Add more water if too thick.
Mind Refresher: Stand straight, breathe normally, and watch the breath as you toss the salad.
