This is a great favorite of mine. I love spicy food, and that is where the jalapeno comes in.

Very tasty and quick salad! I had a leftover grilled chicken breast so used that and this came together in a flash. Just enough kick, great with the lime. I left out the onions and used a red bell pepper. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2012 event, recommended by Chicagoland Chef du Jour
