I found this recipe for 5-minute southwest layered salad in the Spring 2006 Food & Family magazine that Kraft sends me. I don’t usually find recipes in their publication because they require too many prepackaged, processed foods. However, this one sounded good and it is! It is also very quick to put together. We’ve had it a few times already.
I’ve adjusted the amounts to suit our tastes when I make it, but I’m typing up the original recipe. I mix it up before I serve it since I think it is easier.
