Southwestern Chicken Salad Recipe

Here's a great recipe for these hot August days! It's light and refreshing and would be great for a picnic.

2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
1 cup drained whole-kernel corn
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
3 Tablespoons sour cream
4 oz. diced green chiles
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Tortilla chips

Combine all ingredients except tortilla chips. Line plate with chips and serve salad on top of chips.
For more "kick," use jalapenos instead of green chiles.

This looks so delicious and I won't need the oven. It looks great for sandwiches and salads which is what I've been living on for the last few weeks.

I think my mom would love this. I think I'm going to make it and bring it to her at the quilt shop where she teaches.
