How to make: Santa Fe Salad

New Year Resolution alert! Looking for something T-A-S-T-Y without feeling guilty?  I have just the thing.  You don't need butter for food to taste great, all you need are spices!  What a perfect way to use up the one pound of cumin I bought.  

yum yum yum:

Gather your ingredients...

Santa Fe Salad
2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
4 cups chopped lettuce and spinach
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
the juice of one lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp chili powder
1 to 1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne (for your spice level)
1/4 tsp oregano 
pinch of salt and pepper
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup shredded cheese
chopped tomato, avocado, apple & cucumber for garnish
sour cream for garnish

To a large bowl, add garlic:

Lime Juice:


 All your spices, chili powder, cumin, chili flakes, cayenne, onion powder, salt, pepper & oregano

Add your chopped chicken and stir.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the chicken.

Cook and stir until the chicken is cooked.

In the meantime, prepare your salads by putting the lettuce/spinach mixture on your plates.

When the chicken is cooked, add to the salad.  Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and all your chopped 'fixins'!
