  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut tortillas into 1/2-inch-wide strips; place in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Coat tortillas lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or just until crisp, stirring once. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, prepare corn according to package directions. Cool.
  • For dressing: In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, the 1/4 cup cilantro, the milk, oil, garlic, chili powder, lime peel, salt, and pepper.
  • Place lettuce in a large glass serving bowl. Top with tomatoes, beans, cooled corn, cheese, and avocado. Add dressing and sprinkle with tortilla strips. If desired, garnish with additional cilantro.
