Tacos and my family go hand-in-hand. Whenever we all get together for dinner, tacos seem to be the first choice on everyone’s list. With my mom and I splitting the prep responsibilities, this meal takes very little time to make. The fun thing about tacos is you can add or subtract ingredients based on your personal taste. Mom and I put all the vegetable choices, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole and tortilla chips out on the counter and then everyone can build their own meal.
We always chop black olives.
We use lean ground beef, but ground turkey will also work well.
We always use McCormick Seasoning Mix. This is not a paid endorsement. We really do use this product!
This smell of the meat and seasoning on the stove is amazing!
On the counter we put all the fixings. Again this is not a paid endorsement. These are the brands I use.
My taco masterpiece! I’m not a very neat and tidy taco eater.
Mom likes her tacos in more of a salad arrangement.
Austin likes his tacos neat and tidy with very little vegetables. He wants to be able to pick them up to eat them.
My Dad likes his guacamole on the side. Doesn’t his meal look yummy?
Final shot before digging in. I love this meal and it’s so easy to make. Margaritas are always a perfect addition to this meal. I happened to opt for iced tea because I had to drive home.
