1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken

1/2 cup cooked corn

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained, rinsed

3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

3 tablespoons taco seasoning

Shredded lettuce

8 taco shells

12 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, cut in half diagonally

Shredded carrot

Pico de gallo

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine chicken, corn, sour cream, bell pepper, beans, cilantro, and taco seasoning in bowl; mix well. Divide chicken salad among 4 small resealable plastic food containers; cover. Store in refrigerator.

  2. STEP 2

    Place shredded lettuce, 2 taco shells and 4 slices cheese in bottom of resealable plastic food container. Place shredded carrot and pico de gallo in small resealable plastic food containers.

Tip #1

- Using a fully cooked rotisserie chicken is an easy way to get cooked chicken when making chicken salad.

Tip #2

- If you don’t have a bento box-style container, use foil baking cups in a square container to create little spaces to hold ingredients. One-half cup or smaller-sized containers are great for dressings and sauces.
