Southwest Chicken Chili Frito Nacho Salad and Funny Friday

I'm a big salad lover but I like my salads to have substance, protein and lots of flavor. The meat and bean mixture you could use in tortillas, over corn bread, in a bread bowl or by itself with crackers. Really the possibilities are pretty numerous. I ate my salad two different ways, as you'll see below and both were delicious. My son enjoyed it as well.
This is also a Funny Friday post, that you will find after the recipe.
With a super busy schedule and the weather heating up so quickly around here, this recipe is perfect. It cooks while I'm at work, I come home and assemble, eat and enjoy the leftovers for several days. No, I did not get tired of eating it. I was sorry to eat the last bit.
Southwest Chicken Chili Frito Nacho Salad

One can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
One can kidney beans rinsed and drained

Slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours on low
