Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Salad

Rating: 4.55 stars
I call this diet haters' diet food because simple substitutions mean you won't feel deprived. You shouldn't miss the tortilla chips because you have delicious black beans instead, and you still get the yummy spicy Mexican flavor and cheese. While not necessarily authentic, this salad is easy to make! If you have time, it's is also wonderful topped with onions and maybe fresh jalapenos.

Crab Ceviche

This has always been a crowd pleaser in my home. This is wonderful as an appetizer served on tostadas or even with tortilla chips. Make sure to refrigerate before you serve, it tastes best when very cold. I like to serve on tostadas with a thin layer of mayonnaise for a nice refreshing lunch.
