Make

  1. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add shrimp (discard marinade) and saute for 4 to 6 minutes, until shrimp are pink and cooked through. Transfer shrimp to a bowl.
  2. Return pan to medium-high heat and add corn. Cook until corn begins to char and blacken in spots, 2 to 4 minutes. Add black beans and cook just until beans are heated through.
  3. Assemble salads by topping lettuce with corn and black beans, tomatoes, avocados and shrimp. Add dressing and crumble tortilla chips over the top just before serving. Enjoy!
