Easy Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Recipe

It has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe… shame on me, for keeping all the yumminess to myself. 🙂 Truth is, I’ve been winging it, dinner, life, motherhood, everything!! Which is a testament to me needing some organization in my life at the moment. And meal planning action in the kitchen. Last week I made a sweet and spicy shrimp dinner worth sharing…

Beef Taco Bowls

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…
