A tiny bit of taco seasoning mix packs big flavor in this south-of-the-border twist on traditional chicken salad. Try it in a tortilla wrap with crisp romaine lettuce.


  • 2 cups purchased deli-roasted chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion tops
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper (seeded, if desired)
  • 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning mix


  1. In a small bowl, stir together chicken, celery, mayonnaise, green onion tops, shredded cheese, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno pepper and taco seasoning.
