Chicken Taco Salad

I don't know about you, but Mexican food is a staple in our house.
We have some sort of Mexican dish on the menu at least 1-2 times a week.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to share one of my favorite "healthier" Mexican meals.
Chicken Taco Salad
Here is what you need:
  • 2-3 Chicken breasts, cooked & shredded (I use my Quick & Easy Shredded Chicken Recipe HERE)
  • Lettuce
  • Green Onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • Black Beans, drained
  • Packet of Chicken Taco Seasoning
  • Tortilla Strips
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Fresh Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream
  • Lime Juice
I use my Quick & Easy Shredded Chicken Recipe {HERE} to cook the chicken. I boil 2-3 frozen chicken breasts & then put them in my kitchen aid and it shreds up the chicken!

After you shred the chicken, mix 1/2 cup  hot water with the packet of chicken taco seasoning.
Pour the seasoning mixture on the chicken & coat the chicken.
Now it's time to assemble your salad. Chop up the lettuce & put in a bowl.
Layer diced tomatoes, diced green onion, shredded chicken, drained black beans & chopped avocado:

Sprinkle with shredded cheese:
Add Fresh Salsa, Guacamole & Sour Cream....this is your salad dressing:

Squeeze some fresh lime juice on top & garnish with tortilla strips:
Such a pretty salad.....
But now it's time to toss the salad & serve it.
You could also add corn or rice to this salad.
I add fresh corn to this salad during the summer months when corn on the cob is at the Farmers market :)
This meal reminds me of a salad you could get at Chipotle, it is so yummy!
It can be made as an individual serving or for a group.
It is delicious!

If need ideas for Cinco de Mayo, here are some of my go-to Mexican Recipes....

Anyone else love Mexican food as much as we do?
Have a fun Cinco de Mayo!

  4. Hey Mel! We planted our garden back about a month ago and ALL of my tomato plants already have tomatoes! Ah! I'm worried its too early!

    I also wanted to tell you I've been making your chocolate chip zucchini muffins for years and we love them. I recently used that recipe to tweak a "Whole30 Approved" muffin recipe and am thrilled that the zucchini made them perfect!
