On individual plates, evenly layer lettuce, bell pepper, mango, avocado, tomatoes, beans and cheese.

4In food processor or blender, process all dressing ingredients until well blended and cilantro is finely chopped.
Arrange chicken evenly over salads. Drizzle about 3 tablespoons dressing over each salad. Top each evenly with tortilla strips.
