This is from epicurious and it's simply fabulous! Super easy as it starts with a store bought cooked chicken.

Delicious! Loved the combination of flavors. I also used more chipotle than what it called for. Thanks!

Those over the age of 15 loved it. I think I used more chipotle than called for making it too spicy for the kids but perfect for me. I made about half a recipe and used grilled chicken breast rather than the rotisserie. I also used red onion and tossed with the romaine lettuce to make it easier to serve "family style." This made a perfect main dish portion for 4.

Loved this! Easy and superfast. Awesome flavor, loved the combination of fresh lime, chipotle, and cilantro. Perfect meal for warm weather. Used a can of black beans and loose salad greens, probably more than a tablespoon of chipotle but even so this wasn't overly spicy. Would be good with regular tortilla chips instead of fritos as well. Thanks for sharing!
