    Tex-Mex Chicken Salad Bites


    For the dressing:

    • 2 tablespoons sour cream
    • juice from 1 small lime
    • 1/2 of a small avocado mashed (you'll use the other half in the salad)
    • good sized pinch of ground cumin

    For the Chicken Salad:

    • 1 cup cooked shredded chicken
    • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
    • 1 roma tomato diced
    • 1/2 avocado diced (other half from dressing)
    • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1 small jalapeno seeds removed & diced
    • tortilla chips for serving


    For the dressing:

    • In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, lime juice, mashed avocado and cumin and mix well. Set aside.

    For the Chicken Salad:

    • In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, corn, tomatoes, avocado, green onions, cilantro and jalapeño. Add the dressing and gently fold all ingredients together.
    • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. Stir before serving.
    • Serve on top of your favorite tortilla chips*


    *I served the chicken salad on top of fried flour tortilla rounds I made myself. I simply used a medium sized biscuit cutter to cut circles out of flour tortillas. Then fried them until golden in vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
