If it’s hot out and your looking for a fast and refreshing dinner, then this might be your ticket. It is so good! The creamy avocado lime dressing has just the right amount of tang to give your taste buds a kick. Plus they are good for you, so if you end up eating a whole batch you don’t have to feel too bad :).
I have made it four times now, having had my husband request it twice, once for dinner guests who loved it, and the ultimate test…my 18 month old even eats it! It’s a keeper!
Southwest Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps With an Avocado Lime Dressing
head of iceberg lettuce, with the full leafs pulled off, or tortillas
meat from 1 rotisserie chicken, or four chicken breasts, cubed and chilled
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
a bunch of cilantro, chopped
6 green onions, or 1 white onion, finely chopped
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 teaspoon of cumin
salt and pepper
optional: 1-3 jalapenos finally chopped (if you like heat)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, except for the lettuce.
Avocado Lime Dressing
1 cup green chili sauce (I used canned)
4 ounces of fresh lime juice, or the juice of 4 limes
1/2 cup of sour cream
Blend in a blender until smooth.
Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture. You may not need the whole amount, just add until it is the consistency you like.
Then scoop up into a lettuce cup and enjoy! I think this would also be so good with some of that green Tabasco sauce, I just haven’t tried it yet.
Let me know if you make them and what you would do different!
