Provided you didn't down all that yummy chicken from last night's chicken tacos in a midnight craving rage, I have a great way to eat the rest of it for lunch -- a Chicken Taco Salad.

I know, I'm so not a salad person, but it's just like eating a taco without the shell.

Check out the recipe and feel free to make one up as you go along, too!

Chicken Taco Salad

  • Shredded chicken from last night
  • Sauce from last night's meal
  • Your choice of lettuce ... I like Iceberg
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Avocado

Combine all ingredients and mix together. Add the sauce from last night right before you eat. Add by the tablespoon -- you should have enough to just coat everything, not douse it.

Other things you can toss in: Corn, black beans, red onions, and sour cream.
