Chipotle Chicken Salad
{this is our version of a Cooking Light salad}

Baby greens of your choice {amounted need to serve desired number of diners} I use spring mix
2 cups chopped grilled chicken breast
1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced red onions
1/2 {or more} shredded cheese of your choice
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained well
1 can corn, rinsed and drained well
1 avocado diced

1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2/3 light sour cream
1tbls milk
1tbls minced chipotle chile{canned in adobe sauce}
1 tsp adobe sauce {or more if you like it spicy like we do}
1 tsp cumin
1tsp chili powder
4 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp salt

Whisk together and refrigerate. This will last several days in the frig.

*I usually only use half of this recipe and save the rest.

Layer the salad ingredients to your liking on a large platter. I toss it together while I'm serving.
Yep, it's really this easy and SO good!

I am so happy that you are doing this salad feature. This one looks great too. We had your Caprese Rice Salad with some chicken in it for dinner last night and it was wonderful. You are my new go-to salad spot!
