Chicken Fajita Taco Salad, no cheese, no sour cream, no shell.

Chicken (white)
Lettuce (iceberg)
Tomatoes, Onions
Bell Peppers and Onions
Guac. (probably 2-3 TBSP)

My calories were very low all day so I'm not terribly worried about it, but would love a ballpark...

Amount on the chicken?

I'd give yourself 50-100 calories for the veggies, 100-150 cals for the guac, and then the chicken...6 ounces cooked is about 250, so eyeball based on that.

And then if I'm eating at a restaurant, I always add a tbsp of oil - the bell pepper and onion and chicken all may have been cooked in it - if you cooked it at home that's less an issue.

Definitely a restaurant. If I'd cooked it at home I'd know how many calories were in it. ;) hehe.

No idea on the Chicken. It was underneath the lettuce and ended up all mixed in. Can't imagine they put much more than 6 oz in though, for $$ reasons. It was on the smaller side of medium for a restaurant salad. :)

I'll just estimate high and go from there. I'm sure I'll still be way below cal limit for the day (got a little intense working and forgot to eat for much of the day...)

Thanks, Chunky. No dressing. Well, a couple TBSP salsa. I'm not big on dressing. :)
