Makes: 4 servings Prep 18 mins Cook 2 mins View Nutrition Facts


  • 2 small corn tortillas
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon  kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 jalapeno (seeds and veins removed for less heat if desired), minced
  • 2 cups  shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 pound  shredded cabbage
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 navel orange, peeled, quartered and sliced crosswise
  • 1 cup  frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1/4 cup  cilantro, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed
  • 3 ounces  crumbled queso fresco or ricotta salata


1. Lightly coat the tortillas with the cooking spray on both sides; lay on a baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Place under the broiler or in a toaster oven and cook, watching closely and turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer tortillas to a cutting board and slice into thin strips; let cool.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, oil, scallions, jalapeno and remaining salt. Add the chicken, cabbage, bell pepper, orange and corn; toss well.

3. To serve, mound the salad in shallow bowls. Top with the cilantro, avocado and cheese. Garnish with crisped tortilla strips and serve immediately.

To the Sodium Nazi's: If you want them to put a sodium count on this, it wouldn't be accurate anyway because they have no way of knowing what type of chicken 0or brand of cheese you choose to use. Rotisserie chicken from the store is going to be much higher than a breast you roast at home. It seems like you're being unrealistic.

2 tsp. or tbsp. of oil? Recipe seems low in calories, but high in fat. Would like to see sodium and cholesteral in the nutrition list.
