My husband and I love spicy foods, so I made up a chicken salad recipe that really pushes the envelope on Southwest flavors! It's such a great change from the traditional chicken salad sandwich.

Ok, wow... this is one incredible sandwich! Even those in my family who don't normally gravitate toward chicken salad fell in LOVE with this one. Enjoy! The Test Kitchen
