Southwest Popcorn Salad

This is a twist on a salad with some familiar southwestern flavours. I used Poko Popcorn Jalapeno Cheddar popcorn to give it a nice crunch and some spice instead of the usual crunchy tortilla strips. Add some ground beef or chicken and top with fresh salsa for a filling meal.
