This has been a go-to meal for years for us, and it has translated really well into Vanlife.
I was playing with seasonings one night as I cooked chicken to put in a salad for dinner, and I loved the sweet and savoury heat it added to our salad!
The tortilla chips and Ranch really compliment the flavors of this dish.
You can modify this salad to your own tastes!
Perhaps you’re not a broccoli fan, or you hate black beans. That’s fine!
The beauty of a salad is you can toss it together your own way! Play with it, and have fun!
If you don’t have all of the ingredients, use what you do have! I often make a simplified version with no black beans, corn, tomato, or avocado-just a simple salad with chicken and tortilla chips on top.
This soup is pure comfort food, and perfect for a cold night in the van! I love making a big pot of soup, and having the leftovers the next night. I always serve this soup with homemade garlic toast, which I make by toasting bread slices in a pan, buttering them, and sprinkling them with Garlic Salt. Bon Appétit!
