Here's the Dish

Chipotle-Charged Salad

Chipotle Salad - 3-09.jpgWe love foods with a little kick like this quick main-dish salad.  It's full of flavor but light on calories.


Stir together these dressing ingredients and set in fridge while you make the salad:

2 teaspoons dried cilantro

1/3 cup light sour cream

1/2 chipotle chile canned in adobo sauce, diced - use more chile for more heat

1 teaspoon adobo sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

2 teaspoons lime juice

Pinch of salt


Combine these salad fixings in a large bowl:

2 cups baby salad greens

2/3 cup chopped, grilled skinless chicken breast

1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved

1/2 peeled avocado, diced

1 cup canned pinto beans (about one-half of a 15-oz can), rinsed and drained

½ cup frozen whole-kernel corn, cooked and drained


Pour dressing over salad and toss gently.  Divide between two pasta bowls and enjoy immediately!  Serve with corn or flour tortillas.


Makes two main-dish servings.

For a split second, I was jealous of all that packing room. Just think how many pairs of shoes I could bring. But no worries, thanks to the anti-aging skincare and beauty pros at IT Cosmetics, I won't need anywhere near that much space. They've come out with convenient, grab-and-go sizes of some of their best sellers.
