If your family does an official Taco Tuesday, I am coming over next week for dinner. As for me though, taco day is any day. It is so simple to make a great meal with anything you can scavenge from the fridge, wrap it up in a tortilla, and call the creation, “taco.” Whether left over chicken, beef, or just veggies from dinners throughout the week, you can throw it all in a pan with some oil, couscous, taco seasonings and peppers, and dinner is served. (Your fridge is thankful for some newly acquired breathing room, too.) Today’s dinner is a simple Taco Fiesta that your family will love because each family member gets to assemble individually. Even better: It can then be turned into an egg creation for your child’s lunch the next day. We will be using ground beef, but truly you can use any meat you want (pork, chicken, fish, shrimp, etc.) If you are a vegetarian, saute up every veggie you can get your hands on. Squash, zucchini, peppers, tomato, and onion make up my favorite taco topped with guacamole and extra spicy salsa.
-Salt, pepper, and taco seasonings (I am attaching Whole Foods’ recipe for homemade taco seasoning)
-4 ripe avocado
-2 cans of corn
-1 can black beans
-1 small can Rotel
-Corn or Flour tortillas

-4 Ripe avocados
-Salt and pepper
