I think we’re back to our normal schedule… So here’s another easy recipe! Taco Bowls with Old El Paso’s Taco Boats Flour Tortillas. I’ll be honest the first time I saw these, I thought’ “why not just use regular tortillas.” I bought them anyway because I had a crowd at home, and it seemed like the perfect quick meal to feed everyone. We liked them so much, that I have made a few variations since.
The one that I am sharing today is with ground beef. If you have visited my blog before, you know that I am all about delicious but quick meals. If this is your first time visiting, make sure to check out previous recipes. 😉 Now, on to the instructions…
Making the Taco Bowls
First, I set the rice to make. Then sautéed onions and jalapeños, mixed in beef and taco seasoning; cooking until browned. I lowered the heat and added the salsa, making sure to mix it well. Then, heated the taco boats according to the package instructions.
Once the beef was done, we each filled our boats with beef and rice and topped with other ingredients; cheese, sour cream, etc. My husband likes avocado, so he added a few slices to his. I added some fresh cilantro to mine. And the girls like to keep it plain, rice, beef and cheese was enough for them.
There you have it! Super easy, right? This meal is perfect for a busy week night. And absolutely kid friendly. If your kids are like mine and like to be involved in the kitchen, this is a meal they can help with.
