Taco Salad With Fritos Recipe
1 Fritos original corn chips bag 10.5 oz
6 cups romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
2 1/2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
16 oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup black olives, sliced
1 cup salsa
1 can can southwest corn 15.25 oz
2 ripe avocados
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp tomatoes, diced
2 Tbsp red onions, diced
1/4-1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
Slice your avocados in half and remove the pits and skins. In a bowl, mash your avocados with a potato masher.
Stir in your Greek yogurt, tomatoes, red onions, lime juice, and salt, and set the guacamole aside.
Using clean hands, crush half your bag of Fritos chips and place them into the bottom on your trifle dish.
Spread 3 cups of your romaine lettuce on top of your Frito chips layer. Top your lettuce with the pinto beans.
Spread your corn out evenly on top of that. Pour your salsa on top of your corn.
Add 2 cups of your shredded cheese on top of your salsa.
Carefully spread your fresh guacamole on top of your cheese.
Crush the other half of your Frito chips on top of your guacamole. Add your remaining 3 cups of romaine lettuce on top of that.
Place 1/2 cup of your shredded cheese on the center of your lettuce. Add tomatoes, red onions, and black olives. Serve with more Fritos chips and you’re good to go!
