Mexican-style Tortilla Salad


Add in some cooked chopped chicken or shrimp for a main meal, this salad will also pair well with French dressing instead of the ranch/salsa mixture, see The Best French Salad Dressing if you prefer a lot of beans in the salad then add in two cans, don't forget, add in the chips just before serving ;-)
