4 Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Last weekend, my aunt and uncle were in town and we had a lovely progressive dinner! Since all of the siblings live close to each other, it was a great idea that my mom came up with and allowed a little break between each course! :-) 
Appetizers were at Clark and Rebecca's, the main course was at our house, and then dessert and coffee was served at Parker and Emily's! :-) 
I made:
Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad 
Turkey Enchilada Casserole
Goat Cheese, Chicken, and Spinach Quesadillas with Avocado Sour Cream
Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos with Mango Black Bean Salsa 
Spicy Corn Bake
and Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili
I have talked about how to have a successful dinner party here, but I also need to point out, that it is important to remember how many dishes need to be hot and how much oven space you have. I specifically picked a salad and something that could go in the slow cooker to allow for more oven space. The quesadillas were made on the stove top and just needed to be warmed in the microwave right before everyone was served. This allowed the corn bake, the casserole, and the chicken for the tacos to have plenty of room to stay warm in the oven! :-) 
When deciding on a salad, I wanted to stay with the "Mexican" theme and remembered seeing this Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad on Harvest Home! :-) 
It was beautiful and allowed for a lot of color on the plate, which I love! And, of course, it tasted wonderful as well! :-) 
Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad:
2 cups shredded chicken
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can sweet yellow corn (or 1 cup frozen corn, thawed)
2 roma tomatoes, diced
4 green onions, sliced
1 head lettuce, washed and chopped 
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 ripe avocados, diced
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
Put all ingredients in a bowl, toss, and top with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
