  8. The tortilla crisps may be made 1 day in advance and kept in an airtight container.
  9. In a large bowl combine the corn, the bell pepper, and the scallions, add in the lime juice, the oregano, the cumin, the oil, and salt and black pepper
  10. to taste, and toss the mix till it is combined well. Cut the chicken
  11. lengthwise into thin slices and add in it to the corn mix with any juices
  12. which have accumulated on the cutting board. Divide the arugula and the tortilla crisps among 4 plates and mound the chicken salad in the center of each plate.
