Southwest Chicken Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Definite keeper! I also add a can of drained black beans or black eyed peas to this. When fresh corn comes out in the summer, don't skimp on time, fresh shaved corn in this is awesome!
Easy to make and lots of flavor. I used canned chicken, canned fiesta corn, chipotle chili powder, doubled up on the dressing and added black beans. This one is a keeper!
I love this recipe. It makes a large batch and you can add in whatever you want or have on hand. I like to add cherry tomatoes, avocado, black beans and sharp cheddar cheese. It is really good on top of chopped lettuce as a salad, in tortilla wraps or served with Scoops tortilla chips. I usually double the dressing so I have extra if I make a salad out of it.
I don't like vegetables so I try to 'hide' them in foods I'll eat. I like chicken salad well enough so, in a fit of healthy eating, I decided to make this. It-was-delicious! I added black beans to give it a little more color and a couple of roasted jalapenos (minus the seeds) for spice. Aside from that, the only thing I'd really change is .. I might make a larger batch of the dressing. The amount provided is enough.. i just really REALLY like the dressing so... I want more!
Great recipe and you can make it a little bit differently every time by adding avocado, tortilla chips, black beans, etc. You could also use the precooked Purdue chicken for a quick supper. I love the addition of cilantro.
I have made this many times since I first found it in the magazine. I love it! I up the spice a bit by using chipotle powder in place of some or all of the regular chili powder (depending on who I am serving it to! :)I think it is even better if made ahead, or as leftovers when the favors have all blended.
Good use of leftover chicken. Left out the corn since my husband doesn't like it but added a few extra peppers. Good alternative to mayo based chicken salads.
Wonderful flavor. I omitted the cilantro since my family doesn't like the flavor. It made a healthy meal that the family enjoyed.
This was pretty good. I used an actual rotisserie chicken from the store, but I think next time I'll just use cubed chicken breast to save time on clean up.
This is a delicious recipe! Great flavor! I had chicken breast on hand so I used that, and green pepper instead of red pepper. My family loves this dish!
