Tex-Mex Pasta Salad with Raisins

Serves 80

2 lbs. Rotini or other similar pasta
4- 15 or 16 oz. cans Black beans, rinsed and drained each
4- 15 or 16 oz. Whole kernel corn, drained
6 cups California Raisins
4 cups Chopped green bell peppers
4 cups shredded cheese (use combination of white and yellow)

Dressing:
4 cups Mayonnaise
2-1/2 cups Salsa

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.
Make dressing by combining mayonnaise and salsa.
Mix pasta with these remaining ingredients, then stir in dressing.
Reserve one cup of dressing to add just before serving.  The pasta will tend to absorb 
some of the dressing and the salad will dry out slightly.
Chill both the salad and the reserved dressing until serving time.

Yield: 2-1/2 gallons salad or 80 (1/2 cup) servings
