Vegetarian Taco Salad - total time 20 minutes

Whenever I think about taco salads I remember this Bud Light radio spot from way long ago (apparently there was a TV commercial that went along with it).  It was about how taco salads have crazy amounts of calories, but because it is a salad, people think they are being healthy.  That commercial kind of stuck with me over the years and I don't think I've ever really had a taco salad since even Bud Light thinks it is an unhealthy option.  Well, here's one that is light on calories, full on flavor, and completely meatless!  It was so good wanted to go back for seconds despite being completely full.

1 head of lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1 small onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 cup corn
.5 cup queso cheese
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 green onion
salt and pepper
tortilla chips

1.  Heat onions, peppers, and corn over medium heat with salt, pepper, chili powder, and red pepper flakes.  After about five minutes, add tomato.  Cook for an additional five minutes
2.  While vegetables are cooking, shred lettuce.  Place chip on plate, add shredded lettuce on top.  Add a heaping layer of vegetable on top of the lettuce.  Sprinkle queso cheese crumbles, then add avocado slices and green onions.  You're ready to eat!
