Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad

Jolayne Cooper


I found this recipe in Cooking Light. I made it for a potluck at Church and everyone loved it. It is easy to prepare and only 249 calories per serving when divided by 4. It makes a lot of salad, so you could serve more people and the calorie count would be less.
