SoCal Loaded Chicken Taco Salad with Avocado Creamy Lime-Cilantro Dressing

Chicken Taco Salad
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1.25-ounce packet taco seasoning, divided (I use reduced sodium, medium heat)
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce
  • 1 or 2 medium tomatoes, diced (I use vine-ripened; Roma or cherry tomatoes may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup canned corn, drained (fresh or frozen may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium Hass avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I use a monterey Jack and cheddar blend)
  • 1 cup seasoned tortilla chips, crushed (I crush Doritos in my palm)
Taco Salad Dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (lite okay)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (lite okay, plain Greek yogurt may be substituted)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons lime juice, or as necessary for flavor and consistency
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar, optional and to taste
  1. To a large skillet, add the olive oil, chicken, evenly sprinkle with 1 heaping tablespoon taco seasoning, and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, flipping intermittently so all sides cook evenly. Cooking time will vary based on thickness of chicken breasts and sizes of pieces. Allow chicken to rest in pan off the heat while you assemble the salad.
  2. To a large platter, add the lettuce, and evenly sprinkle with the tomatoes, corn, black beans, avocado, cheese, tortilla chips, and chicken; set aside.
  3. To a small bowl, add the mayo, sour cream, lime juice,2 tablespoons of SoCal Guac Sauce Original Avocado Hot Sauce, 1 heaping tablespoon taco seasoning, and whisk to combine.
  4. Add the cilantro and stir to incorporate. Add additional lime juice to thin out dressing if desired.
  5. Evenly drizzle dressing over salad.

Add the chopped garlic and cook, stirring, for an additional 2 minutes.

  • Grill the bratwursts for 30 to 35 minutes, turning often. Be careful not to poke holes in the casing. Remove the bratwursts from the grill and simmer in the beer sauce for an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot with onions on the rolls.
