Grilled Chicken Santa Fe Salad



What do you do when it is freezing cold outside? Make a grilled chicken salad for dinner! Ha! This salad was crazy good! Well, worth braving the cold for! Marinated grilled chicken, fresh chopped romaine lettuce, caramelized onions, peppers, tomatoes, black beans, cheese, and a low fat Chipotle Ranch Dressing, topped with tortilla strips. This meal was a HUGE hit in my house. If you like Tex-Mex then you will want to make this salad!
