Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad

With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, I've got Mexican food on the brain!  From quick and easy tacos to ooey-gooey cheese dip and quesadillas, it's hard to beat the simplicity of Mexican-inspired dinners and snacks.

Although it's not your typical Mexican fare, as the weather starts heating up, this Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad really hits the spot.  It features chopped roasted chicken breasts (in a pinch, you could use canned chicken), lettuce, cherry tomatoes, avocado, red onion, black beans, and canned corn, all tossed with a creamy and spicy chipotle dressing.

With 80 reviews by our users - and most of them 5-star! - this hearty salad is a delicious way to satisfy cravings for Mexican flavors without adding too much to the ol' waistline.
