Everyday Mom's Meals: Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday

This would have normally went live yesterday, but I just had to wait until today. Why? Because if you do Taco Tuesday at your house, but want to switch it up a bit...THIS is for you!

Not only are you going to get all the flavor of your favorite taco bar, but this is the ultimate "dump and go" or "set it and forget" it supper.

See, we are smack dab in the middle of basketball season at our house. After the 2 week holiday break, last week we were back at in in full force. With 3 practices and 2 games...it was a little hectic. (You gotta remember, with a 2 year old, most things seem more hectic than they actually are. Oh, and I forgot to mention we are also potty training!)

The times of the games vary, and sometimes we can eat before we leave, but for the most part, I need to make sure there is a warm, tasty, hearty meal waiting for us when we get home because I'm going to have some starving boys on my hands. Not Max. He gets a packed supper and eats in the stands while he watches Bruh Bruh do his thing. But the husband and the teenager are quite ravenous by the time they hit the door.

 So, I have been turning to my slow cooker A LOT. I can make sure it's cooking all day and then when we get home and they are chewing on their arms, supper is ready. Last week, it was this. Seriously, if you can brown beef and dump cans...you can look like a rock star with this!

I garnished it simply, but I think it would be terrific with some shredded cheese and other taco toppings too. Lettuce, diced tomato, cilantro...the possibilities are endless!

The boy loves to get the rebound!

I am so proud to be a basketball mom. He has improved so much and absolutely LOVES being on the team. We only have a few more weeks left on the season, so if they are a little hectic and kinda stressful for mom, that is okay...after all, I have my trusty slow cooker on my side!
