Some Like it Hot – Spicy Taco Salad

My husband is someone that likes it hot. Probably why he married a feisty southern Italian with an Irish temper. I do all the cooking so I try to get some hot stuff in there every once and a while just for him. Turns out though, I love this too!

Taco Salad

This recipe is for two people with leftovers. That’s how we roll.
Adjust to suit your needs and taste.  Also, I use mostly ingredients from Trader Joe’s. You use whatever you like.

1 tbsp oil

1 medium onion diced

2 clove garlic crushed

1 lb organic ground beef

2 tbsp taco seasoning

salt and pepper

Trader Joe’s organic fire roasted diced tomatoes with green chiles
(use a cup of regular diced tomatoes to lesson the fire in your mouth – or not)

1 can organic pinto beans

iceberg lettuce

1 avocado sliced or guacamole

In a large frying pan heat up oil.  Add the diced onions and garlic until soft. Add ground beef. Use taco seasoning to taste.
When the beef is browned, add tomatoes and pinto beans. simmer for 15 min. Let cool for 15 min.

Serve over chopped iceberg lettuce topped with guacamole or slice avocado

You’re welcome :-)
