Take-out Tuesday, Amped Up Taco Tuesday!

We often have tacos during the week

The boys love them and they are so easy to make

We have made them in a variety of ways

Loaded Chicken and Vegetable Taco Bake

Baked Ground Beef and Refried Beans Tacos

Taco Salad is my personal favorite

And I love Taco Soup

We’ve even made a Taco Bread Boat

But when I suggested tacos last week

I had no idea HHjr was going to surprise me with this!

He started with a layer of Knorr Taco Rice

Topped with taco seasoned ground beef

Then a lightly fried flour tortilla

Warm cheese queso was poured over the stack

And he topped it with chopped tomatoes and chives
