Easy Open Faced Chicken Tortilla Salad

Monday, May 4, 2020
I just love the ease of this open-face chicken tortilla salad.



These are chicken-filled tortillas that are sauteed with garlic and peppers, topped with salad and vinaigrette dressing.



Any meats you like can be substituted for chicken and even seafood!



These can be made into wraps, open-faced, rolled for an appetizer, or topped like nachos!



It's a perfect lighter meal during the hotter months using all fresh vegetables.



They can even be made all vegetarian for my nonmeat eater readers.



Great for brunches, lunches, and dinners or even taken on a daily picnic to the beach.



If you substitute a low carb tortilla, you will even have another reason to enjoy a healthy meal to keep your summer body trimmed!

Summer Meals



This is a great summer meal.


The best part is you can adapt this to any meat, seafood, or vegetables your family enjoys.


Change and adapt these into wraps, bowls, nacho style, and change them into a fun meal or snack.


This is a healthy light meal and the fastest lunch or dinner to whip up in less than 30 minutes.


Another idea is to roll them and slice them as an appetizer pinwheel!

Tips:


  • Always warm the tortilla or bread using
  • Drizzle just a little bit right before you serve these with a dressing
  • If you have a favorite dressing other than suggested use that and adapt to your preference
  • Any freshly chopped vegetable should be cut right before serving to preserve freshness
  • Make the tortilla into rolls for appetizers
