Mexican Layered Salad

Mexican Layered Salad

A few weeks ago I shared with you the basic "7-Layer-Salad" recipe.  The layered-salad recipes still to come in posts later this year are:   

Mediteranian Many Layered Salad

Asian Seven Layer twist


Spring Life Layered Salad

 Today I am sharing the Mexican Layered Salad version that I created.

Romaine Lettuce (washed, drained and chopped)                    Printable Recipe
3 tomatoes (washed, cored and chopped)
2 avacados (peeled and chopped)
2 tablespoons cilantro (washed and chopped)
3 green onions (washed and chopped)
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cups shredded cheese (Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Pepper cheese are all great options)
frozen corn (thawed, rinsed and drained)
1 small sour cream (16 oz)
1 packet of dry guacamole mix
2 tablespoons salsa

Prepare the ingredients as listed above.  Mix the sour cream, guacamole packet and salsa together until well blended.  I like to see the beautiful layers of this salad so I use a large glass bowl (However, if you don't own one then any large serving bowl will do - stainless steel, ceramic - whatever).  Begin layering the salad and start with the lettuce first. 

The order doesn't really matter but this is the order in which I build this salad (going from the bottom of the bowl to the top):

1.  Lettuce
2.  Beans
3.  Green Onions
4.  Tomatoes
5.  Sour Cream mixture
6.  Corn
7. Avacado
8.  Cheese
9.  Cilantro

When you are dishing up this salad - make sure you serve all of the layers and scoop all the way down to the bottom of the bowl.

  1. that looks great!!! I'm mexican and didn't know this :)

  2. This is my own creation - I'm not Mexican but I love Mexican food and I hope this salad has that wonderful flavor (I think it does). If you try it - please let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Looks yummy. I love all kinds of Mexican food. It would be easy to add or remove ingredients to our specific taste.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
