Chipotle Chopped Chicken Salad

Pumpkin pies. How are we today? What a ridiculous question I am asking. It is Friday. Hello. The sky could be falling and all would be well in my world. Obviously I have been on a veggie kick lately and that means ANOTHER salad for us today. Taaaadaaaa. This salad is beyond amazeballs. It is more like amazeglobes. While the dressing is not super low cal, I really couldn't care less because I am more so into cutting carbs (not class). For those of you calorie counters, the dressing is worth it. Trust. When I am at home cooking, presentation is certainly not everything. Having an industrious shovel to help myself to delicious tasting food is. 
Ingredients
Dressing:
1/3 c chopped cilantro
2/3 c sour cream
1 T minced chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce (I actually added about a tablespoon of adobo sauce to the dressing as well. I like the spice.)
1 t ground cumin
1 t chili powder
4 t fresh lime juice
1/4 t salt

Salad:
4 c shredded romaine
2 c chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breast
1 c cherry tomatoes
1/2 c diced avocado
1/3 c chopped red onion
1 can black beans rinsed
1 can corn (I omitted this part. Counting carbs, peeps.)
1 half cucumber chopped (I added this part for crunch.)

Mix all together and BAM!
You get that. Yum. For reals. Ok. Big weekend on the horizon. Big. First up my lovey dovey, talented Jules is taking professional headshots for me this weekend. Ummm if you are in Richmond or surrounding areas and need some professional photography, she is your gal. Girl wears many hats. I am still trying to figure out an activity she cannot do and do well. We are also attending a Richmond bloggers beauty event this weekend with our girl Erin and I will be sure to take pictures to let you loves in on the goods. Also, start of a huge series next week. Huge. Let's just say there is a room in my house that is being renovated and you will all be in on the process. Busy weekend ahead. Phew. I am exhausted by even looking at that itinerary. What are you all getting into? Fill me in. Loves!
