By show of hands, who has a teen or two that could eat a four course meal as a snack? I’m right here with you, raising my hand as high as I can get it! My oldest has a bottomless pit and there seems to be no end in sight for the amount of food he can put away in one sitting. If you’re like me and looking for an economical, quick and easy dinner (or in the case of my teenager, an appetizer), this will do the trick and hopefully add a floor in the bottomless pit.

What’s great about these mini tacos is that they are super versatile. You can bring them to kids’ parties, an after school snack, the main course for dinner, or just an appetizer for a grown up party. These tacos are also versatile in the sense that you can add in our favorite vegetables and seasonings. We love tacos in this house. I’m often getting creative and trying different ways to season and prepare the tacos. So far, I haven’t failed and each one has been a hit! Get creative and add some different toppings to these mini tacos!
This is also another great recipe to have on hand for Taco Tuesday! My kids are always reminding me, “Mommy, it’s Taco Tuesday!” Hardly any time will be spent in the kitchen and no more spending money at a restaurant to appease the little minions. If you have a teen who likes to spend time in the kitchen, this is a recipe you could teach them and soon they will be feeding themselves a healthy meal. Then you can prop your feet up and take the night off! Ole`!
