Green Chile Chicken Salad

Great on a toasted bun, wrapped in a tortilla, or served on crackers. We also enjoyed it wrapped in some greenleaf lettuce, sans bread.  This was very quick and easy to put together.

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced celery
  • 1/2 of a 4-ounce can diced green chilis
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon adobo

You can mince everything by hand, or throw the chicken, red onion, and celery into a food processor. Pulse a few times until it is coarsely chopped. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

Add half of a 4-ounce can of diced green chilis, the mayonnaise, and adobo. Mix well, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
