South West Haystacks

I love it when dinner is simple and tastes delicious! Thes South West Haystacks
were different but SOOOOOO scrumptious. The mango adds a unique taste that completely 
makes the meal! These will definitely be on our meal rotation!!

South West Haystacks
1 lb ground beef or diced chicken....cooked
6 c. cooked rice
3 diced tomatoes
3 diced avocado
4 diced mango's
Chipotle dressing (recipe below)

After cooking meat and rice, prepare your South West Haystack. Place desired amount of rice in individual bowls. Top with meat. Add desired amount of tomatoes, avocado, mango's and chipotle dressing. Enjoy! 
*makes approximately 6 servings

Chipotle Ranch Dressing
1 c. ranch dressing (bottle or make your own...we prefer homemade)
10 shakes of Franks HOT sauce
1/2 t. cumin
a few drops of lime juice (or lemon, we've done both)

Mix together and serve.
*Note: This dressing keeps in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks



  1. I love the recipe for the salad dressing. I saw chipotle ranch dressing in the store today, and was tempted. I love your idea to jazz up regular ranch.

  2. I had ground beef, but didn't want to make the same old stuff, so I came to your blog for ideas. I just happened to have a mango and an avocado, so I gave this a try. We loved it! What a fun combo of flavors and a fresh change for summer.
