WHAT YOU NEED:

For Salad:
-2 Cups shredded chicken
-1 Green pepper, chopped
-1 Can black beans, drained and rinsed
-1 Can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
-2 Roma tomatoes, diced
-2 Haas avocados, diced
-1 Head of lettuce, chopped
-1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
-4 Green onions, chopped
-1 Cup crushed tortilla chips-Try my homemade tortilla chip recipe!

For Dressing:
-2/3 Cup plain greek yogurt
-1/2 Cup  mayonnaise
-1 Tablespoon ranch seasoning
-1 Tablespoon taco seasoning

Combine chicken, green pepper, black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocados, lettuce, cilantro and onions in a large bowl. For the dressing: combine the greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and seasonings. Mix well. Add the dressing to the salad (start by adding a little bit of the dressing and add more until desired dressing amount for salad is obtained). Mix everything well, so the salad is coated with the dressing. Top with the crushed tortilla chips and enjoy!

This makes a ton of salad that can feed a large group of people! Next time, I might try to cut the recipe in half.

Hope you enjoy! 🙂

This is the rice cup I was talking about. The package contains 2 cups of rice. It only needs one minute in the microwave, great for saving time over a stove or to take to work! There are different varieties such as white, brown, jasmine, yellow, and medley.

This is the completed dish! Doesn’t it look scrumptious?! Here I used tilapia and seasoned it with Mrs.  Dash – Lemon pepper.
