Taco salads are a definite crowd pleaser, and this salad revolves around a similar idea (just with chicken instead of taco meat).

It’s filled with Tex-Mex-inspired ingredients like corn, red onion, tomatoes, and cheddar. Add spicy chicken and it’s a filling meal.

By the way, you can buy organic chicken already seasoned or you can grill or bake some yourself. Just rub the chicken with some combo of spices like chili powder, cayenne, cumin, and salt before you cook it.
