Zippy Southest Chicken Fajita Salad
2½ cups chopped chicken from leftover Greek Chicken Kabobs
1 (16 oz.) frozen bag bell pepper and onion stir-fry, thawed
1 (15.5 oz.) can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
¾ teaspoon mild no-salt chili powder
1 head lettuce (green leaf, red leaf or romaine), chopped or torn into small pieces
2 whole-wheat tortillas, halved (optional)

1. In a heatproof bowl, add chicken, vegetables, beans, and chili powder. Stir and heat in microwave until warmed.

2. Pile lettuce onto plates. Top with chicken mixture and pico de gallo. Serve with tortilla halves, if desired.


Cooking Tips: If you like spicy food, use 2 jalapeños in the pico de gallo and also keep the seeds in the jalapenos. Also, homemade pico de gallo is easy to make and much tastier than canned.
