Southwest Chicken Salad

Southwest Chicken Salad recipe

Serves 4

3 heads of Romaine lettuce (organic)

1-2 lbs of Grilled/Skillet chicken seasoned with pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, no salt seasoning, and for a little kick add chipotle.

1 can of organic black beans

1  to 1.5 cups organic corn cooked (fresh or frozen)

Roma Tomatoes to taste

Mild or Medium Pico (if your family likes it hot add jalapeño)

Guacamole or fresh sliced avocado

Toritilla strips or chips (optional)

I like this meal without a dressing but it’s also good with a squeeze of lime.

This meal can easily be made with left over chicken or for picky eaters made as a salad with chicken on the side.
