Chicken Nacho Salad

I heart salads. And I’m really crushing hard on the crunchiness of this Chicken Nacho Salad. It’s all that I love in a good plate of nachos…but mixed together as a salad.

Sliced tomatoes, sliced avo, little shredded mozz tossed with some shredded chicken, romaine and crushed tortilla chips. Drizzle a vinaigrette over the top and you’ve got yourself a great and filling salad.

This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover rotisserie chicken or leftover shredded chicken from the slow cooker.  Toss it on a salad with the other leftover nachos or Taco Tuesday fixins.

And bam…simple and delicious lunch or dinner is ready!
