Zippy Southest Chicken Fajita Salad
- In a heatproof bowl, add chicken, vegetables, beans, and chili powder. Stir and heat in microwave until warmed.
- Pile lettuce onto plates. Top with chicken mixture and pico de gallo. Serve with tortilla halves, if desired.
Cooking Tips: If you like spicy food, use 2 jalapeños in the pico de gallo and also keep the seeds in the jalapenos. Also, homemade pico de gallo is easy to make and much tastier than canned.
Keep it Healthy: Any other vegetables on sale can be used like avocado, cucumber, scallions, or canned green chiles.
Grocery Tips: If you can’t find frozen onions and bell peppers, substitute with low-sodium canned or frozen corn.
