Taco Tuesday Comeback!

My girls have really taken a liking to tacos lately. They ask for them all the time. The past few Tuesday's in a row we have managed to have tacos for supper so we started calling it taco Tuesday. The girls love assembling the taco's themselves so I leave it all separate in little dishes except I put the cheese directly on their own plates. I learned that trick after enough "she's taking all the cheese" episodes. Now they have their own so no need to fight. No fighting ='s happy Mama!
As a working Mom I definitely do not have time to make my own tortillas (ha, as if) so I buy the $3.49 PC taco kit. I try and make these a bit healthier by switching out the ground beef for ground chicken and using spinach instead of lettuce. When I was a child I can remember my Mom making us tacos. My siblings and I would have competitions to see who could eat the most. My taco eating competition days are long gone so for the grown ups I make a salad that includes all the taco fixings + more. The taco salad actually contains less calories and is much more filling then your typical tacos. It tastes delicious too. It's a win win for us and the kids!

I realized that the picture of the salad was taken before the most important ingredient was added, a broken up taco shell. Sorry folks it's a crucial element, do not forget!


I have a new recipe for mango chicken tacos that I might try out for next Tuesday, stay tuned! 

Why don't you try a bring back the taco Tuesday?
