Taco Tuesday Fiesta

With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, and Tuesdays being deemed “Taco Tuesday” by many, today was the perfect time to have a Taco Tuesday Fiesta of our own! Old El Paso makes it easy to bring our meals together with their taco kits, taco sauce, and refried beans! As a busy mom whose husband has long shifts at work, I am all about things that make my life a little easier and meals that come together quickly.

The Hard & Soft Shell combination Taco Dinner Kit makes it extra convenient so that everyone can have what they want. Personally, I like both hard and soft shells, so this is extra great for me!

For our Taco Tuesday Fiesta, we had hard and soft shell tacos with ground turkey, spanish rice, refried beans, and then toppings of cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and taco sauce. I  also made some guacamole for the first time to serve with tortilla chips, and it turned out great!

I’m sure many of you have made tacos or can at least follow the directions on the kit, but I will share the steps anyway. First I browned the ground turkey.

While the turkey is browning, I began heating the beans and cooking the rice.

Once the turkey was drained, I added the seasoning mix and water to it and stirred it all together.

Once everything was ready, I set up a “Taco Bar” to make it fun and easy to make our plates.

Our Taco Tuesday Fiesta was so delicious and has gotten me pumped for Cinco de Mayo! I may have to add in a themed drink or two. You know, for the celebration :).
