This recipe is a family favorite in our house and great for company. With summer I love good salads and this is a perfect one to try. You can vary the ingredients to personal taste, making it a good choice for adults and kids.
Cooked rice (brown or white)
Chili beans heated
( not to be mistaken for chili, but canned beans in a chili sauce. Easily found in the bean section of the grocery store)
Grated cheddar cheese
(this can simply be shredded lettuce, or you can add other ingredients that would be in a salad, such as: tomato, carrot and green onion, olives, peppers, etc.)
Ranch or Blue Cheese Salad dressing
*Notice I didn’t put any exact amounts. You will have to gauge this according to how many people you are feeding.
Put out all above ingredients in order, buffet style, and let people layer the ingredients on their plate. It will make a tall haystack! The beauty of this recipe is that your family or dinner guests can make them the way they want.
If you want to do a Mexican version of this recipe. Add taco meat to the list and substitute the salad dressing for sour cream and salsa.
Or…put it all out and let people choose!
