South of the Border Corn Salad

Only because you asked~ :)
Okay this is actually a Weight Watchers Recipe:
You will need:
1 lg. poblano chile
4 C. chopped lettuce
2C. peeled and shredded jimaca (about 1/2 pound)
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
6 T low sodium corn relish

Preheat the broiler. Line a sm. baking sheet with foil; place the chile on the baking sheet. Broil 5 inches from the heat, turning with tongs, until charred, about 5 min. Wrap the chile in foil and let steam 15 min. When cool enough to handle, peel, discard the seeds, and coarsely chop.
Combine the roasted poblano, lettuce, jicama, tomatoes, and corn relish in a large bowl/ Serve at once. Points per 1 cup serving is 1)

I then added the broiled Tex-Mex Steak to it:
Marinade Recipe is:
3 T tomato paste
1 chipotle en adobo plus 2T adobo sauce
Juice and grated zest of 1 lime
1 1/2 t ground cumin
I put the marinade in a zip-loc bag and add the steak. Refrigerate, 2 hours or overnight.
Spray the broiler pan with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler/ Remove the steak from the marinade; sprinkle both side with salt (1 t). Broil the steak 4 inches from the heat until done to taste, 8-9 min on each side for medium-rare. Let stand 10 min before carving.
I used about 1 1/2 lbs of sirloin steak.
This is only 4 pts per serving.

You can also do the steak and serve over any salad greens with any vinaigrette dressing! Yumm-O~

Thanks for asking for the recipe, have a great week!
