Easiest Taco Salad Ever

There are nights where it takes me so much (SO MUCH) effort to make dinner.  I try to refrain from eating out because I know that I will make bad food choices and not eat nearly as clean as I could at home.  This taco salad is absurdly easy and something I always have ingredients on hand for.  I rotate what I put in it based on whether or not we have shrimp, left over chicken, beans, etc. etc.  This one was made with shrimp (which you can't see) that we sauteed in a small bit of olive oil for five minutes.

{ Ingredients }
* Bagged coleslaw mix (found in the salad aisle)
* Tomatoes
* Low fat shredded, blended cheese (I use the Trader Joe's Mexican blend)
* Onions
* Shrimp, chicken, or beans
* Lime Juice
* Salt and pepper
* Sriracha

{ Directions }
* Cook shrimp, chicken, beans, etc. to taste
* Layer one handful of coleslaw mix on bottom 
* Top with meat, cheese, tomatoes, onions, and any other veggies
* Season with lime juice and a few squeezes of Sriracha

Sometimes the best things are the simplest IMHO!


  1. I totally agree! I try all these random new recipes and at the end of the day Greg and the boys love taco/taco salad nights the best. Go figure. Yours looks yummy!!
