Southwestern Salad with Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken

This salad is so yummy and a family favorite ! I knew I wanted to grill on Labor Day, and I knew exaclty what I wanted to make ! I just didn't think I'd be doing it in the rain !
Southwestern Chicken Salad

10 C. torn romaine
1 15oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 C. cherry tomatoes (or whatever you have )
1/2 C. Caesar Salad Dressing ( I used Ken's Tableside Caesar)
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
2 TBS. snipped fresh cilantro
1/2 C. broken tortilla chips
* 1 1/2 C. chopped cooked chicken ( NOTE: I used the grilled chicken )

1. In large bowl, combine romaine, black beans, tomatoes, (and chicken )if you want to add it all together. ** I made the salad and served the chicken on the side.
2. For dressing : whisk salad dressing, chili powder, and cumin. Pour over salad. Toss to coat.
Sprinkle with cilantro and tortilla chips.

Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken

Oooh this summer I discovered KC Masterpiece Lime Chipotle Marinade and it's amazing !
I just marinated the chicken for a few hours, and grilled !

Plenty of leftovers for my hubby to take to work.
He'll be Oh so Happy !
It's DIY Day at a soft place to land !
