Egg & Veggie Salad with Chipotle dressing

A very simple yet colorful and nutritious taco salad with homemade chipotle dressing..Salad has a bed of lettuce topped with diced 🥑, 🍅, sweet peppers, black eyed beans and corn sautéed in cumin powder, thinly sliced onion, sliced boiled eggs, sprinkle of finely chopped green onions and some tortilla chips for the crunch! This salad is loaded with protein and has tons of veggies. A very adaptable salad that can be made with what ever veggies you have on hand, just make sure to include the protein. This is somewhat like a burrito bowl, you could include the cilantro rice as well, but we loved it without the rice..
