Southwest Sweet Salad

My favorite Southwest Salad made easy right from home no cutting, chopping, or blending but if you cook your corn then you’ll need to do that. The reason why there’s nothing to cut is because I was trying to think of a salad recipe where I didn’t have to do much but throw things in a bowl, mix and eat. Definitely, save prepping time.

I would definitely call this my signature salad recipe because it’s easy to make and everything I like in my salad I think if I added anything else I’m just being greedy. How about you?

Once I tried A Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad from McDonald’s I was like yummy this is really good I can make this at home with the ingredients of my choice. It’s very similar to a McDonald’s Southwest Salad without the chicken. If you ever have time check out how McDonald’s make their salad’s go grab some ideas for your next get together.

Here are my ingredients:

50/50 Blend: baby spinach and spring mix

Southwest flavor tortilla strips

Corn

Dried & sweet Cranberries

Sunflower seeds (kernels) I prefer ranch but the choice is yours

Ranch salad dressing (optional) your choice

Old Lady Gang A Southern Eatery in Atlanta, GA #KandiBurruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss – Tucker and husband Todd Tucker came together on an idea to share some home Southern recipes. I love their family traditional recipes and how each member of the family has their own recipe on the menu.

 

The cornbread muffins with Kandi’s homemade honey icing and syrup. I tried to get the recipes but you know how that goes. I walked away with no recipe.

I ordered the Old Lady Gang House Salad. This chicken is on point I need the recipe for that too. It was really good and my waiter made sure I was good and if he was too busy I made sure I asked with no problem.

Some of the credit goes to Aunt Joyce mother of Kandi, Aunt Bertha, and Aunt Nora who is the “Old Lady Gang” are the ones who taught Kandi to throw down in the kitchen. The Old Lady Gang is located right in the city’s Historic + Art District which is the Castleberry Hill neighborhood in Atlanta, GA

If you watched Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta you would have seen the introduction of OLG.

When you in Atlanta, GA make sure you stop by and show love. It’s not that intimidating you might be nervous for a bit but then once you warm up everyone is so laid back and respectful. All photos are my own.

Homemade Ultra Nacho Supreme Salad 

This is my dinner craving I’m no pro cook or food blogger I like recipes when I want something I can cook at home. Great family appetizer or a planning snack. If you ordered this at a restaurant how much would you pay for this? I totaled up all the ingredients I got from my local supermarket/grocery store and it came up to $10.75 for 3+ servings.

Optional Ingredients:

Doritos – JACKED [RANCH DIPPED HOT WINGS]

Corn – I boiled the corn for a few minutes.

Cheese – finely shredded. I used the Mexican style that you would normally use for quesadillas.

Lettuce – optional I didn’t use lettuce or onions.

Sour Cream

Tomatoes – fresh diced or petite cut, however, you like them. Stay away from can tomatoes if you can.

Ground beef – I used my regular seasoning like Goya Adobo and then I added Taco Bell Taco seasoning mix. Some people won’t use seasoning and just use the Taco Seasoning but I use both.

Ortega Taco Sauce – Medium
