Tacos are definitely kid-friendly, and there aren't many who don't love tacos. Mom can enjoy this meal as well, since it's pretty easy to make and does have some nutritional value.
If the demands for tacos are high, it's a good thing there's several ways to make tacos or similar Mexican dishes the family will love. Here are several we've made in our kitchen to keep up with the demands:
Seasoned meat, flour or taco shells, shredded cheese, and other fixin's. It doesn't get much easier than this! I usually make more meat than needed so there will always be leftovers. You can mix up the toppings by offering new things like olives, sour cream, taco sauce, peppers, and beans.
Another simple dish, but requires a bit more time to prepare. Cook your meat as usual, and scoop into a large flour tortilla. Add an equal amount of cheese to the burrito and roll up. Bake in the oven until crispy.
This dish is put together in the same way as real lasagna, but the meat will be a bit different. One layer will be refried beans from a can, followed by seasoned taco meat and taco sauce. The next layer will be shredded cheese. You'll have about 4 layers when you are done, and it will be topped with shredded cheese. Cook the same way you would normal lasagna.
We are lucky it's now possible to buy taco salad shells at the store! Pick a few of these shells up as well as lots of lettuce. This version is more healthy since you'll have mostly lettuce in the meal with a little bit of meat.
There are many Mexican dishes out there, but for the taco crowd these are the most basic. Sure to be loved by any kid who loves tacos!
