Spicy Chipotle Chicken SaladThis is a good one from the fabulous website, Our Best Bites. I've mixed it up a bit and made a super slacker version of their Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad. Here's what you'll need:
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 15 oz can of black beans
1 11 oz can of Mexicorn
Throw all of these into a colander and rinse all of the "can juice" out. Then throw them in a big bowl along with:
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce (I use 1 1/2 bags of baby Romaine)
2 cups chopped grilled chicken (I use either a box of Short Cuts grilled chicken, or shredded rotisserie chicken)
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
Mix it up real good and set aside. Now for the dressing. You'll need:
2/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup Ranch dressing
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 chipotle chile, finely chopped (from a can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce. Found in the mexican food section at the grocery store)
1 1/2 tsp adobo sauce from canned chipotle chilies.
1 tsp chili powder
juice from 1 lime
1/4 tsp salt
Mix these all together really well and pour over the salad. Mix it all together now. It makes about 4-6 servings, but we never have leftovers. It's super spicy*, and super good. My all time favorite salad. Muy delicioso!
*To cut the spiciness, omit the chopped chili pepper. To add more heat, add more adobo sauce.
