    2 medium scallions, chopped
    1/2 medium red pepper chopped (not added to ingredient list) optional
    1/2 medium bell pepper chopped (not added to ingredient list) optional
    15 oz. canned black beans, rinsed & drained
    1 15 oz. can sweet corn
    2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
    1 Tbsp. corn oil
    8 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast
    2 Tbsp. reduced-sodium taco seasoning, mild or hot
    4 Tbsp. cilantro, fresh, chopped
    4 Tbsp. fat free sour cream


Combine scallions, peppers, beans, and corn; mix well. Add lime juice and oil; mix again. Add chicken, taco seasoning and cilantro; mix well. Top with sour cream and serve. Makes about 1 1/2 cups salad plus 1 Tbsp. sour cream per serving.

Notes: I add a lot more cilantro. I do not like peppers so I leave them out and did not include the nutrition information for them.

This is great served in the tiny baked Tostito shells.

    I love this recipe, I found it on the weight watchers' web-site when I joined last year and I have to have it at least once a week. Thanks for posting CINDYHEN! - 2/6/11
