Southwestern Grilled Steak Salad

I eat a lot of leftovers. A lot of them. Which isn't to say a bad thing because thanks to the convenience of a sandwich, if I have leftovers, then I don't get "bread belly." That's an official term by the way (yeah, not so much) but that's what I call it when I eat bread and then deal with the mid back and gut pain for 30 to 45 minutes while I'm digesting it. So leftovers save me from throwing together a half sandwich and then paying for the ease of the meal with the pain of digestion. 

However, because I eat a lot of leftovers I tend to get bored with having the same thing I had for dinner for lunch so I like to change it up a bit. Which is what I did today. There was leftover grilled steak and corn in the fridge so add some lettuce, avocado, salsa, and spicy corn chips and you've got yourself a banging salad of splendiferous proportions. Completely delicious, completely filling, and lacking only in the "bread belly" blues after eating. Yay!
