Expert Tips

  • Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapeno chiles. They can be purchased dry or canned in adobo sauce, a thick and spicy red paste of ground chiles, herbs and vinegar. Look for canned chipotles in the Mexican-foods section of the grocery store. Once opened, transfer the canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce to a non-metallic container and store them in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Chipotle chiles give a smoky heat to this salad’s dressing. For a milder flavor, use less of the chipotle chile and adobo sauce, or omit them entirely.
  • To reduce the fat in each serving of this salad by about 10 grams, use fat-free French dressing and reduce-fat Cheddar cheese. To reduce the fat and calories even further, use baked blue corn chips.
