Santa Fe Tacos


Tacos are a staple in our household and for good reason – my kids absolutely love them! Some of them like all the toppings, while others prefer a more simple approach. The great thing about tacos is that they’re a quick and easy meal to make. In just fifteen minutes, dinner is ready to go!

As the meat, onions, and garlic are cooking on the stove, I use that time to chop up some fresh tomatoes and lettuce to create a taco tray for the kids to assemble their own creations. I love setting up a mini taco bar so that everyone can customize their tacos to their liking. It’s a fun and interactive way to enjoy a meal together as a family.
