Chipotle Chicken Cajun Chicken Salad

My husband and I both LOVE salads. I have recently wanted to find different things to do to a salad considering we are going into summer and everyone loves a yummy “healthy” meal. So this is a very easy, simple delicious recipe that I recommend everyone should try. You can add/take away different parts of this recipe. For example, I added more chili peppers than maybe the normal person, and added red pepper flakes and Cajun seasoning. Can you tell we like spicy?
Let’s begin. Here are the ingredients:

Here is the dressing:
-1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
-2/3 cup light sour cream
-3 tablespoon minced chipotle chili, 
canned in adobo sauce (If you don’t like
 spice, you might want to do less)
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 teaspoon chili powder
- 4 tbsp of lime juice
-1 tsp red pepper flakes
-1/4 teaspoon salt

And here is the salad:

-2 heads shredded romaine lettuce
-2 chopped skinless, boneless chicken breasts
-1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
-2 diced peeled avocado
-1/2 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
-1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
-1 can no-salt-added whole-kernel corn, rinsed and drained

And here is the extremely easy recipe:

Combine all ingredients of dressing and mix well.

Start cooking chicken and season in any Cajun spices you like.

Combine lettuce, tomatoes, avacado, onion, beans, and corn in bowl and pour dressing on top.

Lastly, put chicken over salad and toss. Mix well, coating the whole salad in dressing.

Serve :)
