Southwest Salad with Creamy Chipotle Lime Dressing

The highlight of this salad is the tangy dressing made with chipotles. I was inspired by a similar salad on the Nutmeg Notebook. I served this salad for Father's Day, along with this recipe from Chocolate Therapy for Crockpot Chicken Tacos.

Romaine lettuce chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1. To make dressing, combine sour cream, mayo, chipotle chili, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
