Grilled Chicken Nacho Salad

My friend, Pat A., inspired me to create this recipe after she served us a white bean nacho appetizer she cooked on the grill for our girl’s night. I was intrigued with the idea of grilling a plate of nachos and boy were they good! I have made it a little healthier with homemade tortilla chips and more substantial with the addition of rotisserie chicken and homemade guacamole. Eating it as a salad gets a green side on the plate and it’s fun to eat!

Taco Casserole

I did not “get” Twitter until I started The Whole Meal and found myself thoroughly absorbed in all things social media. Now Twitter and Instagram have been such great sources of inspiration for me; this recipe being the perfect example.

A Tweet from @MyFitnessPal with a recipe for a taco casserole had me thinking this looks yummy and easy but when I looked at the ingredients it didn’t seem very taco-ish (had black beans and corn in it) so I played around with more traditional taco ingredients and this easy casserole was born; like eating a taco without all the mess and clean up! My family loved it!

Chicken Enchilada Chopped Salad

My good friend and tester, Teri W, has a killer chicken enchilada recipe that is comfort Mexican food at its best, but when the temperatures are still in the 90s (and I did not have any flour tortillas) I wanted a lightened version to serve for dinner. Southern Living reader favorite, “Chicken Enchiladas” was the additional inspiration I needed to create this unusual but incredibly fresh and distinctively enchilada-vibe dinner salad that had all of us fighting over the last serving.
