  2. Meagan, this is so fun! I love the layering – thanks for sharing friend!

  3. I have a backyard casual dinner party coming up and these would be great to serve!

  4. And this is why you are the smart one of the group! I will be eating gobs of this salad after a day of gluttony!

  5. Pretty sure I ate my weight in chips and guac last night so this salad is just what I need to celebrate Cinco de Mayo today! 🙂

  6. Meagan, how genius! Such pretty layers, too!

  7. They look so pretty in the jar!

    I can never get enough of Mexican food! 🙂

  8. These are so pretty! I definitely could use healthy recipes that give me the Mexican flavors I love. I overindulge too! Thanks for a delicious salad idea 🙂

    Just wondering what size mason jars to use. You have mentioned in another post they need to be packed in well to store for a couple of days.
    Thanks 🙂

    Do the tortilla chips get soggy after being in the refrigerator? Looks yummy, minus the corn, I don’t like corn.

    I know this is probably going to sound stupid…but a friend told me she was in love with these jar meals but I have to admit, I’m a little confused. Do you pour the ingredients out of the jar when you’re ready to eat? Do you try to mix it in the jar? Sorry if this is a ridiculous question.

    You say in the article to place lettuce at the top so it doesn’t go soggy YET you layer it at the bottom of this.
    I know from experience lettuce is better at the top, just doesn’t look as pretty in the photo.
    Need consistency with what you say

      Sorry about that! I just updated the post but I need to retake the photos. You will want the lettuce to be on top so that it doesn’t get soggy. If you eat right away then it won’t matter.
