This recipe is very versatile. I added green peppers and sauted the onion and peppers with chopped chicken tenderloins to make it more like actual fajitas. I cooked the salsa/bean/corn mixture in a separate skillet while the chicken and peppers cooked. You can use any kind of salsa you have on hand, I only had bean and cheese salsa and it was great. I used one package of fajita seasoning for each skillet. When everything was done I layered the salad by laying down a bed of tortilla chips, followed by lettuce, topped with chicken/onion/pepper mixtures, topped with corn/bean/salsa mixture, then added cheese and sourcream to top it off. Tomatoes on the side made for nice presentation, plus baby tomatoes are all I had. There is a lot going on with this salad but it all work sso beautifully together and tastes amazing.
