Southwest Layered Salad

A few weeks ago we talked my anti salad husband into going to one of our favorite fresh food restaurants. He's on this major health kick these days and decided instead of his regular sandwich he would order a salad. Nice. I assure you he never expected to actually like it! So when I asked him what kind of salad I should make for our family BBQ he was quick with his answer. I decided to mix things up and I made my own take on his newfound favorite Southwest Chipotle salad. There were no leftovers- and my mouth waters every time I look at this picture.

Southwest Layered Salad

4 cups or 1 (store bought)bag of leafy lettuce
2 cups shredded chicken
1 cup black beans
2 cups Frito corn chips
2 cups cheese
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 cups diced avocado

Layer items in this order and serve with Chipotle Ranch Dressing Serve immediately.

  1. This was delicious and beautiful to look at. I'm definitely using this the next time I have to take something to a ward dinner.
