Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday

Whether you call it Taco Tuesday or Fiesta Friday, it is a hit in my household.

My brood has gotten involved in the set up and we enjoy that part almost as much as the eating part …my daughter at age four sets the table and fills serving dishes with shredded cheese and sour cream while my older sons help by chopping toppings.

Tacos are a perfect meal for families like ours, and I am fairly certain others as well, because for once everyone gets to put together their own creation from their favorite things and enjoy every bite with no complaints or grimacing.

I enjoy using my Aroma rice cooker for preparing the ground beef, since I can do it in advance and have it simmer while I supervise and help my sous-chefs.

I believe it is essential to have many toppings to suite everyone’s appetite and I try to mix fresh vegetables with the necessary ingredients like cheese and sour cream, for a more balanced meal, and not surprisingly, it all gets eaten.

MEAT FILLING
1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning

Set your rice cooker to Sauté-Then-Simmer and brown beef. Add seasoning packet and 1/4 cup water. Let cook for 20-30 minutes uncovered. Switch to warm and close the lid until ready to eat.

TOPPINGS
2 cups each chopped, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, cabbage or lettuce, separated in their own bowls
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
2 cups sour cream
2 cups salsa
1 cup jalapeños, chopped
1 cup cilantro, chopped
taco shells
