One 8-ounce container sour cream

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1/4 cup dried ranch dressing mix 

1/4 cup milk

2 cups crumbled cornbread

Two 16-ounce cans pinto beans, drained 

1 cup chopped scallions, green parts only

2 cups diced tomatoes 

1 cup diced green bell peppers 

1 cup diced red bell peppers

1 cup diced yellow bell peppers

Two 11-ounce cans corn, drained 

2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar

Directions

  1. For the sour cream dressing: In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix and milk and set aside.
  2. For the salad: In a 9-by-13-inch pan begin layering all the salad ingredients.
