Dinner Made Easy With Old El Paso
Dinnertime when everyone in the family is at home and gathered around the table is the highlight of the day at our house. Let’s face it though life is really busy and mealtime and evenings can quickly become a rather hectic time. I love to cook from scratch, but some busy days I’m short on time and just need an easy recipe that will be delicious and nutritious that will be one that the whole family loves. I have no problem using a jar or even a meal kit on occasion especially if it will help me to avoid ordering pizza or going through the drive through yet again.
It just so happens that Mexican inspired foods are at the very top of our list of favorite foods and so that makes tacos an excellent go-to meal around here on busy days.

These soft tortillas are a huge hit with the kids as they love to fill them all by themselves with their favorite toppings and then they can just pick them up and eat them.

With the taco dinner boats, all wrapping is done away with, and everyone in the family from the youngest to the oldest can just pick up their yummy taco and shove them right into their mouth.
Besides being an affordable and fun meal, tacos are a great family even on the busiest of nights for other reasons too. I find my kids eat at least twice the amount of veggies on taco night. I also love that taco night is an excellent night to get the kids involved in the kitchen helping prep the vegetables and other toppings.
You taco boat kit comes with a packet of cooking sauce that gets added to your meat. Then all you need supply on the side is lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, cheese, sour cream, guacamole and the list can go to include any other veggies and toppings that strike your fancy. And the good news is that this prep time takes no more time than it would take you to head out to go through the drive-through or cook some up chicken nuggets in the oven?
