GREEN CHILI SALAD WITH SHREDDED CHICKEN

Green-Chile-Salad-with-Shredded-Chicken-2

When I was younger, my Dad used to make my brother and I the most delicious Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chili. Since Father’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to pay homage to my Dad and create this delicious paleo & Whole30 compliant Green Chili Salad with Shredded Chicken. Topped with my Classic Guacamole, Pico De Gallo and Paleo Green Chili, this salad is perfect for a summer night or an excellent meal to pack ahead.

For the Green Chili Sauce, I use my absolute favorite appliance, my new copper Vitamix. A lot of Green Chili sauces are thick and chunky, plus they often use flour as a thickener. This sauce is nice and creamy and it gets it’s perfect texture from the blended peppers and gut-healthy broth.

I am on Day 15 of my June Whole30 and going strong! I can’t wait to share my experience, tips and maybe even host a giveaway with some of my favorite Whole30 products, so stay tuned!
