1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2/3 cup light sour cream
1 Tbsp minced chipotle chili, canned in adobo sauce
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
4 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp salt

4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (my leftover chicken has some seasoning on them)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup diced peeled avocado
1/3 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
1 (15-oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (8 3/4-oz) can no-salt-added whole kernel corn, rinsed and drained

1. to prepare dressing, combine first 7 ingredients, stirring well.
