  • 4 to 5 ounces Mexican shredded chicken
  • 3 cups mixed baby greens
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed (I used canned, but you can use homemade too)
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1 serving tortilla chips
  • Creamy Jalapeno (or other dressing of choice)


  1. Make a bed of greens on your plate or in a large bowl, and assemble all ingredients on top.

  2. Drizzle with creamy jalapeno or dressing of choice.

Recipe Notes

All amounts of salad toppings are subject to what tastes great to you. If you want more (or less) of something, feel free to change it.

Other ways I have dressed this salad, other than the creamy jalapeno:

  • guacamole as dressing
  • salsa + sour cream
  • salsa + ranch
  • cilantro lime ranch
