Instructions
  1. Place all spice rub ingredients in small bowl and stir together.
  2. Gently rub and pat spice rub into chicken.
  3. Set chicken aside.
  4. In large skillet with two tablespoons of oil, saute onions, corn and tomatoes on medium-high heat until tender.
  5. Add black beans, paprika, cumin, salt and chili powder to mixture. Heat for an additional two minutes while stirring.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. In another skillet, place two tablespoons oil and saute chicken until no longer pink — only a few minutes on each side. Do not overcook so the chicken retains its moisture.
  8. Chop lettuce until it is the same size as your diced veggies.
  9. In larger serving dish, layer lettuce on bottom, then tomato and bean mixture, followed by corn chips, cheese and then the chicken.
  10. Serve with your favorite dressing.
