Fiesta Chicken Salad

Ease: 5/5     Taste: 4/5     Kid-friendliness: 3/5     Time: 4/5

Black beans and corn = a good relationship

Was feeling like something light last night and we're still all about getting use out of our "Broil King" (despite our winter-like weather), so hubby BBQ'd up a family pack of chicken for us. This is a quick easy salad to make but if you serve it as a stand-alone entrée, like I did, you'll have a pack of pantry raiders later on. It would thus be better served as a side or lunch entrée. On the plus side, you can use the remaining beans, tortillas, cheese and chicken to make wicked nachos!

What you'll need:

  • 1 head green leaf lettuce (or lettuce of your choice), chopped
  • 1/4 C black beans, rinsed
  • 1/4 C corn, cooked 
  • 1 cooked (BBQ'd is especially nice) breast of chicken, lightly seasoned with tex mex spice
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1/4 C crushed tortilla chips
  • 1/2 C Tex Mex cheese
Combine above ingredients in a large bowl. 

  • 1/4 C salsa
  • 1/4 C ranch dressing
