Lately, at my house, we’ve been cutting back on carbohydrates. One of our new favorite low carb recipes is this Chipotle Chicken Salad. This salad proves that you don’t have to give up flavor to cut back carbs.

Hi! It’s Susanne from New South Charm! I’m back again and this month I’m sharing a great recipe for a low carb recipe that is packed with great flavors.

The ingredient that really makes this chicken salad a winner is the Chipotle in Adobo Sauce. it adds a smoky flavor to the salad that we just love. It also gives the chicken salad a little bit of a spicy kick but not too much.

If you are worried about the chipotle being really spicy you can cut back on the amount you add to the recipe. I personally use about a quarter of a can. That’s a happy compromise for my household since my husband loves spicy foods but I tend to prefer things are the milder side.

Like traditional chicken salad, the base is made from mayo. For this recipe, you’ll blend in some sour cream and the Chipotles in Adobo Sauces with the mayonnaise until smooth and then combine with prepared chicken and onions. For a little added crunch I add a handful of scallions.
