Recipe | "Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad" Sent in by Dr. Kirsten Corda

"Chipotle (pronounced chi-POAT-ley) is a smoked chili pepper, traditionally jalapeno, used to flavor Mexican and Tex-Mex foods. Chipotle is also known as a fast-food chain which gained popularity because of it's founder's public policy to server "sustainably-raised food" wherever possible. That is, the restaurants contract with local farmers who raise chicken, pork, beef and dairy products humanely, in open pastures and without use of antibiotics or synthetic hormones. While there may not be a Chipotle restaurant near you, being aware of where your food comes from is a personal policy you can begin anywhere." - Kirsten Corda
