Mexican Salad

A quick and easy recipe for those days when we are super busy and don't even have time to eat, I bring you this week a salad with a Mexican accent and a tex-mex touch, shredded chicken seasoned with cumin and cilantro in a tortilla basket, fresh lettuce, cherry tomatoes, avocado, some manchego or cheddar cheese and a little tex-mex tortilla crisp, It’s mouthwatering, this salad is super rich, I assure you can’t eat just one salad, I couldn't. 

I created this recipe especially for the little ones in the house, who sometimes find it hard to eat, they are full of color and flavors that make you want more; I made my salad baskets in a mini cocottes because they are colorful and it gives life to the table, but you can make these in a cupcakes mold or in a dish that can go in to the oven.
