"Nice twist from the usual Caesar. Green chiles give this salad a lightly spicy south of the border flavor!"

This salad was great. I served it with the Chicken Chili Stew as part of a themed dinner. The dressing was totally addicting.

This salad was okay, I thought it could use a lot more garlic and chilies.

We really enjoyed this salad and would definitely make it again. I too used the tortilla strips in place of croutons, and baked them in the oven with cayenne pepper and garlic salt sprinkled on them - they were excellent.

My friend is a native of Guatemala, and he loved this salad. We tossed in some fresh avocado and a little bit more garlic. This would be great with Queso Fresco rather than the Feta or Cotija cheese too. We'll make this again and again!

I add about a 1/2 cup of fresh red bell peppers instead of the can of green chiles. Very tasty.

loved this salad dressing. It was a nice change for my family. I used jack and cheddar cheese and drained and rinsed black beans, and it was great! Will definately make again...
