Mexican Chicken Salad Sandwich Filling

Ooh we so love Mexican in this household.  The girls and I like most dishes as I make them, but the boys (so macho) like to add in extra dashes of chilli sauce or jalapenos.   We often have chicken rolls for lunch on the weekends, but this took the traditional chicken and mayo roll to a whole new level.  If you love mexican you must try this!

Firstly I combined a diced tomato, capsicum, spring onions and cheese

Then added poached chicken (or BBQ chook), mayonaise and taco seasoning

Serve on bread rolls… tiger bread rolls on this day, for a special treat!

This recipe sounds so delicious but I have a question. What is capsicum? I’ve never heard of it. I live in America, in Washington State. Does it just go by another name here? Thank you for you wonderdul recipes!

Michelle, I think you call them red peppers. Funny how we have the same things but they are named differently.

Can this be frozen? I often make sandwiches for the week on a Sunday and place in the freezer.

I would love to freeze it. But I am not sure whether the mayonnaise wouldn’t curdle?
