I'm really lucky in many ways. I come from a long line of amazing cook who really know how to make Mexican chicken salad. Whether it's a birthday or holiday or simple get-together, I can look forward to a stunning spread from my aunts and my cousins. I'd say around 80% of the people in my family are serious talents in the kitchen; we'd make for an amazing TV show based on cooking and family! Last year I remember going to my little cousin's beautiful quinceañera and noticed that my other cousin Marylou had made a Mexican chicken salad. I remember taking the first bite and thinking, “Oh man, am I in heaven.” I quickly made a beeline for Marylou to ask her for the recipe and see what the secret was. She called it a Mexican chicken salad because it had peas and corn… no secret at all, just a delicious blend of basic ingredients. I ate it as an appetizer on a tostada just before the main course was ready. It was the perfect little bite for the hot weather, and I recommend you give it a shot! MORE + LESS -
