This is fantastic! I made this just like the recipe except I didn’t add avocado. I thought I had bought them but didn’t. Oops. I used some leftover chicken I had marinated and grilled and a small amount of leftover rotisserie chicken. My family (husband and older kids) absolutely loved it and want it again this week. It made four generous servings though if there had been more, one of my sons wanted seconds.

This was excellent! I added more lime juice and a bit more of the seasoning but even as it this is a great recipe!

This was great! It was a TON of salad so some of ours went to waste, but we loved it!

This is very good. I decided at the last minute to leave out the chicken because Iwas serving it with enchiladas. I followed the rest as written. I used frozen sweet corn and about 10 times the amount of cilantro, exaggerating just a bit. We loved it! I wanted to go ahead and put the avocados in so I sliced them and tossed with lime juice. No browning at all. A keeper for sure!!
