Aztec Chili Salad

Tammy Raynes


A different view of chili. Ground turkey or shredded chicken can be used for this recipe instead of chili. Serve on a bed of lettuce with jicama wedges arranged around the sides of the plate.

Great for a Ladies Luncheon for something a little different. This can also be served as a "meal-in-inself".
