Chipotle Chicken Salad

 

I don’t think I’ve been shy about my love of spicy foods. Fiery recipes are all over this website!

I find it the best way to season food without adding a bunch of chemicals or sugars.

This recipe incorporates my very favourite spice: chipotle.

Chipotle is a smoked jalapeno pepper. Smokiness helps to even out the spiciness of the jalapeno and I . love . it.

In this salad recipe the chipotle spice is complimented by Greek yogurt which adds a rich and creamy texture and cilantro that brings the clean and fresh element. Yum!
