4 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 cups)

Serve a zesty chicken taco salad drizzled with a chipotle chile, cumin, and cilantro dressing. The smokiness of the chipotle brings out the rich flavors of the roasted chicken breasts.

How to Make It

To prepare dressing, combine first 7 ingredients, stirring well.

This was really, really good! I wasn't sure how to roast chicken, so I just cooked a few breasts in a pan with salt and pepper. The dressing could stand to be thinned out, if you wanted to make a bigger salad and still have enough dressing to coat it; but it's not overpowering as it is. If you don't like surprise spicy bites, make sure you chop the chipotle pepper really small, or just take a bit of the sauce instead and mix it in the dressing. I'll definitely make this again!

Great salad

Have made this many times over the years.  The dressing is great and one could easily vary the toppings to suit your taste.  You don't even miss the cheese.

the whole family loved this. The dressing would be great as a dip. Baked some tortilla strips to put on top which was a great addition.

Fantastic! Skip the lettuce; it just gets soggy and gross. No other modifications necessary. One of the best main-dish salads I've ever made - I loved it immediately.

Made this salad last night and my husband and I both loved it. I made a couple of changes to the recipe though. I omitted the chipotle chili in adobo sauce since I don't really care for the flavor and added a little extra cumin and chili powder to the dressing. I couldn't find any ripe avocados, so omitted that and I added some chopped jalapeno to the salad to give it a little kick. Yummy. Will definitely make this again.

Fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I seasoned the chicken with Ms Dash Southwestern seasoning, shucked 2 ears of corn. Grilled both the corn and chicken. Cut the corn off of the cob. My boyfriend LOVED it. Will definitely make again

This was pretty good. I added a splash of milk to the dressing to make it looser. I thought the avocado got lost in the mix.

Yummy! So easy. I grilled the chicken breast. I did alter the ingredients a bit by stretching the amounts. Used 1 cup of sour cream. A little more cilantro. Herdez Chipotle Chiles, very good flavor. Whole 15 oz. can of corn and more romaine. This of course made for bigger portions. I will make this again.
