Tips  

Chipotles add a spicy hot and smoky flavor to foods. To increase the heat, double the amount of chiles. Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce can be found in the Mexican-foods aisle of the supermarket or at a Latino market.

The dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated until use.

Accompany this salad with tortilla chips. Offer a try of brownies for dessert.
