Southwest Chicken Chopped Salad

Here's a quick-and-easy one-dish dinner recipe! If you go easy on the dressing, it's pretty healthy too!


Recipe adapted from here.

3 cups cooked, cubed chicken
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can sweet yellow corn, drained
2 roma tomatoes, diced
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 large romaine hearts, chopped
crushed tortilla chips
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 packet ranch dressing mix
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2-3 tbsp milk

1. To make the dressing, stir together the mayo, sour cream, ranch dressing mix, taco seasoning, lime juice, and milk in a medium bowl. Mix until smooth and completely combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the bell pepper, beans, corn, tomatoes, green onion, and cilantro. Add the chicken and lettuce.
3. Pour the refrigerated dressing over the salad and toss.
4. Top with crushed tortilla chips (and lime wedges and additional cilantro, if desired) and serve!
