We loved this! Next time we’ll add some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for a little more kick, but, this is absolutely a favorite now!

This salad was a hit. I used red and orange peppers because I don’t like green bell peppers, but the other salad ingredients married together very well. For the dressing I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the mayo, (because I didn’t have any mayonnaise). I also used less taco seasoning coupled with some ground chipotle pepper to give it its zing, because I didn’t want the extra salt that is in the taco seasoning. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

I have enjoyed this thoroughly. I leave the lettuce, chips and avacado to the side and then only dress what I want to eat and find it keeps great in the fridge for a number of lunches (2 or 3 anyway). Thank you for sharing. I omit the corn and add extra peppers/beans.
