  • Preheat broiler. In a small bowl stir together ground chile pepper, oregano, thyme, salt and black pepper. Sprinkle half of the spice mixture evenly over chicken pieces; rub in with your fingers.

  • In a medium bowl combine beans, corn, oil and the remaining half of the spice mixture. Stir to combine.

  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Place chicken on one side of the pan. Add bean mixture to the other side of the pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning chicken and stirring bean mixture once halfway through broiling.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine salad dressing, barbecue sauce and vinegar; set aside.

  • To assemble, divide romaine among four serving plates. Slice chicken. Top romaine with bean mixture, chicken and tomatoes, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with queso fresco and serve with salad dressing mixture.
