I love Southwestern food. On a gloomy day a salad like this can brighten you right up with it's smooth crisp flavors.
adapted from Martha Stewart
for 2 hungry people
1 cup canned white kidney or cannellini beans
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/4 cup salsa
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 small avocado chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 chicken breast
romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
handful of tortilla chips
1/3 cup cheddar cheese
Cook the chicken breast. I poach it, but do what you like. Slice into strips.
Place the beans corn and salsa in a bowl and microwave until warm about 2 minutes.
Add the chicken, onions, avocado and tomato and mix. Season with salt pepper and tabasco if you like it.
Plate your lettuce and crumble a couple of chips over top. Top with the bean mixture and some cheese. Serve immediately.
