Step by Step Instructions:
Here’s what you’ll need to throw this filling salad together: Romain Lettuce, Tortilla Chips (about 2 cups), 2 cups of chopped Rotisserie Chicken, 1/2 bunch of Cilantro chopped up, 1 cup of canned black beans rinsed and drained, 1 cup of canned sweet corn rinsed and drained, 2 Roma Tomatoes diced, 1 Green Pepper diced, 4 Scallions sliced, and 1 or 2 Avocados.
As you can see, I already did all of my prep work. I decided it would make my life way easier to get it out of the way quickly. So all that was left was to crush about 2 cups of tortilla chips. I just put them in a big bag and crushed them that way.
Then in a giant bowl I added the lettuce, green peppers, green onions, tomatoes, scallions, black beans, corn, cilantro, rotisserie chicken, and tortilla chips. Then I carefully combined all of the ingredients. (Note that I went ahead and added the avocados and chips now because I was ready to eat. As described in the recipe below, you can combine all of the ingredients except the chips and avocado ahead of time if you’d like.)
Then I assembled the dressing. I needed salt & pepper, mayo, sour cream (I used light sour cream), a fresh lime, ranch seasoning and taco seasoning.
In a small bowl I added 1/2 cup of mayonnaise (I used the reduced fat, olive oil based mayo), 1/2 cup of (light) sour cream, 1/2 tablespoon of ranch seasoning, 1/2 tablespoon of taco seasoning, I ended up juicing an entire lime, and adding salt and pepper to taste.
Then everything gets whisked together – this stuff had some seriously delicious flavor. Oh and the lime juice (sigh) was so yummy in it because it brought out all of the flavors.
All that’s left is to add the dressing to the combined salad. See how quick this comes together when you do the prep work ahead of time?!
Then carefully stir everything together until all of the salad ingredients are coated with dressing. Serve immediately and enjoy! This salad was also really good leftover, which was great since it makes a TON of food. Hope you enjoy!!
