Fiesta Chipotle Chicken Salad

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!DSC_1242It 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!DSC_1247Well 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:-)DSC_0524DSC_0583Onto 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?DSC_1256
