Sweet and Spicy Taco Salad

If you follow my blog then you know that tacos are very popular in our house. Taco salads are another favorite of mine and I love getting creative with them. We love spicy so it makes sense to incorporate that into the salads and the sweet really balances out the spicy heat of the sriracha. It was delicious!

1 lb lean ground beef
1 tsp sriracha
1 tsp cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 cup water
1 head iceburg lettuce, shredded
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1 cup black beans
1 can chopped green chilies, drained
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cup Western dressing
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
Sour Cream and Jalapenos, Optional

In a large saucepan brown ground beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add sriracha, cumin, chili powder and water. Simmer 10 minutes. While meat is simmering, put your lettuce and the rest of the ingredients (except for the dressing and tortilla chips) into a large bowl. Add meat mixture and toss. Top with tortilla chips and sour cream and drizzle the western dressing over the entire salad.

  1. That is really mouth-watering! I absolutely love nachos (in fact I'm planning to serve them at my kids party next weekend) and these look so tasty.
