Do your kids complain about dinner like mine? So I have 2 kids that like “tacos” and one that HATES them. Yep, HATES! But they are super easy. And I flat refuse to throw them out of my dinner rotation.
So I’ve found if you make food look like SNACK food…then for some reason it isn’t “DINNER” food and therefore people (even those that HATE it) seem to like it (if you have the answer for that one…I’d love to hear it)
This is what I do. First, I don’t use any packets for my seasoning. I gave up on that LONG ago. I use this really simple recipe from Allrecipe.com – Taco Seasoning (I always have these ingredients in my house, and this way it doesn’t matter how much meat I throw in there, I can always add more/less depending on what I need vs being dependant on a seasoning packet…plus I know exactly what were eating…always an extra plus)
Brown 1-1.5lb meat
Season with the taco seasoning (I used about 2.5 T/lb + 2/3c water/lb)
Let simmer for about 20 min (IF you have time, if not…oh well, such is life)
Take Tortilla chips spread on a cookie sheet (with rounded up edges)
Sprinkle the meat all over the tortilla chips
Sprinkle cheddar cheese (I use about 1/2 block per 1lb of meat)
Put in oven and broil until cheese has melted about 5-10 min
This is the second time I actually have made these for this post…I turned around to take the photo for the nachos right out of the oven…this is what I found (seriously…these don’t last 15 seconds in my house)
At least I snagged a picture of my husband’s plate before he started eating! Here’s the final product 😊
Always remember you’re AWESOMESAUCE!
