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
