Mexican Chicken Salad with Chipotle-Salsa Dressing

This isn't a recipe, so much as a list of ingredients. The exact amount of each ingredient and even the ingredients included are not all that critical - use whatever veggies you prefer and taste the dressing as you go, adjusting the ingredients to your own preferences.

The salad:
  • 2 grilled chicken breasts. sliced
  • 1 bag of Romaine lettuce
  • 1 sliced red bell pepper
  • 3 ears of corn, grilled
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • chopped scallion or red onion
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 avocado, chopped and tossed with a bit of lime juice

The dressing:

  • bottled Ranch dressing
  • bottled salsa
  • fresh lime juice
  • ground chipotle powder

Place the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

I keep the avocado, tortilla chips and cheese separate - better for leftovers.
