We have been making this dish often in Summer. Bhel means Mixture of items put together to make a dish.
This is quick and very easy. Seems like a lot of items but this is noting more then making a good Salad. When the table is set, guests will think you have worked all day. Most of the ingredients are store bought-one can also make everything from scratch and work all day but the recipe here is simple and quick. I bought Flour Tortillas – bought green-spinach Tortillas also, and cut them with a Pizza Cutter in Diamond shapes and fried them. You can do this 2 or 3 days ahead. I bought Green and Red Salsa, a can of re fried Beans-I bought the Black beans re fried-made sure the can reads Vegetarian. Lettuce, Carrot, Cucumber, Frozen Corn kernels, Mexican Blended shredded Cheese Some places may not have this type of cheese available-one can use Cheddar Cheese. Cilantro-Avacados, Lime and, ready made Guacamole without any bacon (since this is a vegetarian dish)- if Avocados are not available fresh.
For Vegan, do not use the Sour cream and cheese.
Some may call this dish- taco Salad.
I found is easier to use Soup dishes for serving plates.
