I love Mexican food and could seriously eat it almost everyday!  But let’s be honest…it’s not always the healthiest for you.

And this is exactly why we love Weight Watchers because I can find healthy recipes that taste good and quench my cravings.  So when I found this Southwest Chicken Salad recipe I had to try it.  And lucky for me it did not fail.

First I had to chop all of the vegetables.  The green pepper is from my garden, which is still producing beautiful peppers…

I just used a can of corn instead of corn on the cob in order to cut down on time.

You can make it into a wrap, put it over a salad, or even over tortilla chips.  I’ve tried it all three ways and can’t decide which one I like best…they all taste great!
