Fajita Chicken Bean Salad

Fajita Chicken Bean Salad by Coffee With Us 3

This is my second post about the salad supper that our church hosts every year. To read the first one that shows our great vintage centerpieces go here.
While the salad supper is a ton of fun and there is always a ton of food, my biggest food issue comes in to play. I absolutely HATE mayo and miracle whip.  And most salads, other than green salads, have mayo.​

Seriously!! Look at all that food and that isn’t even all  of it . 
So I always try to bring a salad that’s filling and I really like just in case it’s one of only a few I will eat. I always find a few others that are so yummy. Like this year there was a tortellini salad with olives, tomatoes, and I’m not sure what else, that I am going to have to find a recipe for. So Yummy!  If you make that PLEASE let me know!
Update:  I finally made up my own tortellini salad recipe. Check out the recipe.
So this year I brought a bean salad with fajita chicken. I’ve made several bean salads before but this one was kind of a combination of several of those and what I thought would taste good.
Yield: 8 people

This would also work as a great side dish for a BBQ or a picnic. What’s your favorite kind of salad?
