Dinner Shortcuts: Corn, chicken and frito salad

Need a quick weeknight supper? Maybe you just need a fast weekend lunch? This delicious corn, chicken and Fritos salad combines a few simple ingredients into a fabulous supper. We added just a dash of chipotle chili powder but if you are looking for something with less heat, try regular chili powder.
