Fresh Mexican Salad and Homemade Tortilla Chips

It was pointed out to me recently that I have been neglecting my blog, so here comes another post! My dinner tonight was going to be tacos but i felt like something lighter, so here's my latest invention: The Mexican Fiesta Bowl!

Here's What You'll Need:
2 Ears of Fresh Corn (you can use less but I LOVE corn)
1 Can Black Beans
1 Chicken Tenderloin, thawed
1 Roma Tomato
1 Avocado
3 Whole Wheat Tortillas

First start you water boiling for your corn and preheat the oven to 350.

While those are getting ready, shuck your corn and cut up your tortillas into 6ths to form large triangles.

Next cube your avocado and tomato.

When the waters ready boil the corn until its bright yellow.

When the ovens heated bake the tortillas for 5 mins then flip for 5 more, or less depending on how brown you want them.

Strain the Black Beans.

When the corn's done, you need to let it cool.

While it cools, cook your chicken, I just used some seasoning and cooked it on the stove top.

Let the chicken sit for a bit while you cut the corn off the cob.

Mix the tomato, avocado, corn, and chicken.

Add as much dressing as you like, I used Newman's Own Olive Oil and Vinegar.

Next add a few big spoonfuls of the black beans and mix everything up.

Now you can sit back and enjoy!
