It has been a great week! We had our churrasco party Monday night and then we were able to have another party last night. (Not our normal week — I promise.) This time we attended the party instead of hosting it. It was a small, but very fun gathering… and it was Minion themed!It was the cutest idea! My friend has four children and we have been planning a minion party for a long time. The original plan was just dinner and watching Despicable Me, but when she invited us (and another friend) over she had planned so much more! She had a minion piñata for the kids to hit, twinkies for us to decorate as minions and our friend painted her girls nails as little minions!Well in honor of the fiesta we had, I decided to make a fiesta chipotle chicken salad. (It is a corny stretch I know, but I am okay with corny.) Ever since we had those chipotle chicken tacos I have wanted to make the chicken again. So I finally did! Instead of having tacos I made this amazing salad:-)Onto my bed of red leaf lettuce I added some avocado, tomatoes, corn and black beans. I made my chicken pretty much the same way as last time, but I added some lime juice this time to make the citrus flavor a little stronger. I wish I had had some corn chips on hand to put on top. Alas. There is always next time:-) This salad was quite the treat. It had tons of protein, good fats and great flavor. What more could a girl ask for?
