Taco’s are a fast and easy last minute dinner idea! In fact, we can get a taco bar out in as little as 10 minutes!
Hello, hello friends! I’m Yvonne from Tried and Tasty and I’m over the moon excited to be contributing here at Super Healthy Kids. What a great team to be a part of and I feel so honored to be here amongst so many other great bloggers.
I don’t know about you, but I have the hardest time coming up with quick & easy lunch ideas that aren’t your plain ‘ole typical peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Don’t get me wrong, I know everyone loves an ooey gooey delicious pb&j. Sometimes you want to switch things up a bit and don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen to do it. Summertime is quickly approaching and if you are like me you will want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time outdoors enjoying all sorts of fun activities. I enjoy hiking, running, camping, picnics, and bar-b-ques.
When I put together this Mini Taco Bar Recipe I was just about as giddy as you can get inside. Just look at how cute those little tortillas are. I just die! Everyone loves tacos, but make a mini version of them and you’ll have everyone envying your lunch.
You’ll start with super simple three-ingredient healthy taco meat and then have fun piling on the goodies. Instead of iceberg lettuce I decided to help get in a little more nutrients with a leafy green spring mix. Of course shredded cheese is a must, sliced avocados add in vitamins and minerals, cherry tomatoes not only give your tacos a burst of color but also a blast of flavor and sliced olives are just plain fun. Finish it off with a dollop of sour cream and you’ve got the tastiest most adorable lunch.
Lastly, finish off your lunch with a few apple slices and a tablespoon or two of all-natural peanut butter and you’ve got an out of this world quick & easy lunch!
