    Houseblend's Note:

    Trying to eat healthy? Throw together this quick and flavorful cold chicken salad-with a Mexican flavor! I served this warm flat bread, folded like a taco, but this would be delicious on bread in traditional sandwich form, or even on top of some dark leafy greens with a drizzle of salsa. Healthy eating everyone!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 ounces canned chicken breasts (or 1 large cooked chicken breast)
    • 3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1 Avocado, diced
    • 1/2 medium onion, diced
    • 1 cup corn (frozen or canned)
    • 1 large roma tomato, diced and seeded
    • 4 leaves Lettuce, sliced into shreds
    • 3 tablespoons salsa
    • 1/2 lime
    • salt and pepper
    • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
    • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced fine
    • 4 flat bread (or 8 bread slices)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Run your knife through the chicken breast to break up the larger chunks. Place this mixture in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Add cheese, onion, corn (thawed, but not heated), tomato, salsa and jalapeño.
    3. 3
      Drizzle avocado with juice of 1/2 lime, then add avocado to the bowl.
    4. 4
      Add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and 2 tsp taco seasoning to the bowl, then toss to mix well.
    5. 5
      Assemble your meal by warming a piece of flat bread, then adding a layer of lettuce shreds before topping with 1/4 mixture. Fold and enjoy taco-style.
    6. 6
      **These are pretty large, filling serving sizes. If I was serving this with other dishes, I would probably estimate this would serving 5 or 6, depending on how hungry you are.

      This was very easy and very tasty! I will make this again. I didn't have any corn, I sub'd cream style corn. I added homemade pinto beans. And just a squirt HOT sauce. BUT, this was great and filling. The beans made it go further. My husband loved it!
