Taco Kits. So easy. So fun. But they can make you pay more than you have to for a fun and festive Taco Night - both on the wallets and the hips. So prep your kitchen to have Tacos on a whim any night of the week!
- Buy a big container of Taco Seasoning at BJ's for about $6. It will last forever. Or MAKE YOUR OWN TACO SEASONING.
- Have tortillas on hand. Tortillas are a basic staple in my house. I make a lot of crap for my kids with them. Wake up wraps. Quesadillas, Tacos. Great to have for Tacos on a whim. They last a while. Soft tacos are healthier than the crunchy ones.
- Instead of browning up a full pound of ground beef, use 1/2 pound for your family of four. Heat up a can of refried beans for your tacos to supplement the beef. Beans are healthy and keep you full. Lots of protein and fiber in them! My kids love beans - they won't sit and eat a bowl of them, but if they are in tacos - they are fine.
- If you like Taco Sauce, you can buy a jar of it for under $2. It will last a while.
Voila! Healthier, easier, cheaper tacos if you have the staples on hand.
