Mexican Salad

Mexican Salad

This easy to prepare Mexican salad will not take you longer then 20 minutes to whip up. Use any leftover vegetables you have in the fridge and add to salad. I used the El Paso Taco Seasoning mixture as it is so yummy, alternatively you can use a combination of paprika, cumin and salt. 

Ingredients (serves 3-4) 

  • 500gm premium beef mince
  • 1 onion, chopped finely 
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped finely 
  • 1 packet of Taco Seasoning 
  • 4 large handfuls of salad (grated carrot, beetroot, cabbage, spinach, lettuce) 
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, chopped in half 
  • 1 capsicum, chopped finely 
  • 4 tbsp sour cream 
  • 2 handfuls of broccoli sprouts 
  • 1 avocado, sliced thinly 
  • small handful of grated cheese 
  • 1/2 can tinned tomatoes 

Method 

  1. Heat 1-2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat in a fry pan and add the onions, garlic and mince. Stir to combine and cook for approx 10-15 minutes. Add the taco seasoning and canned tomatoes and mix. Cook for another 10 minutes or so until mince is cooked to your liking. 
  2. Prepare the salads on 3-4 plates. Mix all ingredients together and top with avocado. Add any vegetable you like- the more the better! 
  3. Top each salad plate with some mince, 1 tbsp sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese. Garnish with parsley or basil. 

Enjoy xx
