Zesty Adobo Chicken Salad Wraps

Isn't that pretty! This is a gorgeous chicken salad that tastes heavenly! I have several chicken salad recipes that I make but this is my favorite. The flavors all blend together and work perfectly.

You could certainly make this a bit lighter. You could use fat free mayo and not as much of the fiesta corn. All I had was the light mayonnaise and I LOVE lots of the corn in the salad so I put a lot.

I've also used this as an appetizer and put the chicken salad in the baked tortilla scoops.

Zesty Adobo Chicken Salad
3 cups shredded chicken (14 oz)
1/2 Cup light mayonnaise
1 Cup left over sweet fiesta corn or a mexican canned corn
3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 Tablespoon Adobo sauce
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
6 - 100 calorie 8 in. whole wheat tortillas

1. Combine first 8 ingredients into a large bowl until combined. Spread onto tortillas with lettuce.

Total calories with tortillas = 1839
6 - slightly heaping 1/2 cup servings = 307 calories
1 serving chicken salad with tortilla = 307 calorie dinner *

* Enjoy a side dish with your tortilla or eat a light lunch and eat a second tortilla wrap for dinner, for a total of 614 calories and leave super full and happy.
