What's For Dinner? - Shredded Chicken Salad & Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Shredded Chicken Salad & Whole Wheat Quesadillas

I found this recipe through Pinterest & modified it a little. This is the blog that it was originally from & where I got the picture from too. It was gone before I had the chance to take out my camera, that is how yummy it was! Ours looked a lot more green since we added arugula, but this gives you an idea of what it looked like.

2 chicken breasts, boiled & shredded
2 limes, freshly squeezed
1/2 tbsp. cumin
salt to taste
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 can black beans, drained
1 bag of arugula lettuce
1 chopped avocado

Toss in a bowl & serve cold with whole wheat quesadillas and homemade salsa! :)  

We made homemade salsa/pico de gallo to go with this. Again, this is so delicious that it was gone before I could snap a picture, so I pulled this off of the internet. But it looks a lot like ours. :)
Here is our recipe for our Homemade Salsa:

4-6 fresh tomatoes depending on how red you like it :) (quartered to fit into the food processor)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro (I like cilantro but if you don't, you can add less or omit)
1/4 red onion (quartered to fit into the food processor)
4-6 cloves of garlic (I really like garlic so you can modify this to your liking)
1 green jalapeno pepper with the seeds removed
1/2 lime freshly squeezed
salt to taste

Put all ingredients in a food processor & pulse until desired consistency. Serve cold with tortilla chips.

Buen Provecho!
