Copy That! Moe's Southwestern Grill Earmuffs Salad

Kitchen Dreaming


I admit it. I have a Moe's addition. I could eat there a lot more often than I do but at about $20 for two people (including drinks) and a tip it's a little pricey to eat there too often. My newest addiction on their menu is the Earmuffs salad.

Now I can make this little gem at home and I am absolutely thrilled!

20 Min


5 Min


2 small
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
1 tsp
salt and pepper, to taste
1 large
romaine lettuce head, chopped
1 c

1 can(s)
black beans or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium
jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/2 c
white onion, diced
1 c
fresh salsa
1 c
guacamole picado
1/2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp
sour cream, divided
1 Tbsp
fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp
roasted tomatillo salsa verde

Directions Step-By-Step

Season chicken with cumin, salt and pepper. In a skillet over medium high heat, cook the chicken until the juices are clear and the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
In a bowl, layer the lettuce, 1/2 cup rice, 1/2 cup beans, 4 oz chicken, onions, jalapenos, fresh salsa, guacamole picado. Top with cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro and a bit of roasted tomatillo salsa verde.
Note: When I put this salad into my WW points calculator, it is a 9 point salad. However, it is both filling and satisfying and carries me all the way until dinner or beyond. I had to find a way to replicate this salad as it is the only thing I want to eat some weeks! At almost $7 a salad, I can make it at home and enjoy it for a few days/servings for that same price or less.
