Southwestern Chicken & Bean Salad

Here's another Weight Watchers recipe. Even though the ingredients are very similar to the previous recipe, it has a totally different flavor. This makes them perfect to cook at the same time, especially for weekend cooking. It also keeps well in the fridge.

2 medium scallions, chopped
1/2 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
1/2 medium green bell pepper, chopped
15 oz canned black beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 c. frozen corn, thawed
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
8 oz cooked chicken breast (skinless), diced
2 tbsp. reduced-sodium taco seasoning
4 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro (or 2 tsp dried)
4 tbsp. fat-free sour cream

Combine scallions, peppers, beans corn, and chicken in a large bowl; toss until well mixed.

In a small bowl, combine lime juice, oil, taco seasoning, and cilantro. Add to chicken mixture; toss to mix well. Top with sour cream and serve.

Serves 4 (1 1/2 c. salad + 1 tbsp sour cream per serving)
