Ensalada familiar de Fiesta (Family Fiesta Salad)

Debbie Fabre


My family loves Mexican food and this salad is a meal in itself. I serve it for dinner or at a party and there is never a bean left on the plate. My son took it to school for a senior class party and they almost ate the bowl. I felt bad because there was another similar dish and it was barely touched. This salad will be a party in your mouth. Not only is it beautiful, but the different textures and flavors in this salad will make you a believer.

How to Make Ensalada familiar de Fiesta (Family Fiesta Salad)


  • 1Wash and chop lettuce into bite size pieces. Place in bottom of deep bowl. I love clear bowls because it looks so beautiful.
  • 2Pour beans over the lettuce. Mix cream cheese and Rotel tomatoes together and pour over beans and lettuce.
  • 3Cut avacados and squeeze the juice of the lemon on them to keep from turning brown and layer on top of your salad.
  • 4Continue to layer ingredients making sure that some of each shows through on the top of the salad for a beautiful appearance. Finish with dollops of sour cream and sprinkles of cilantro and scallions. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5Serve with crispy tortilla chips. You may put some on top around the edge to make a beautiful presentation.
