Kids always want to end their vacation with a bang. As much as I love the kids inviting all of their friends over to the house, I found myself with an extra eight mouths to feed this week, and I have to be honest: I was a little perplexed.
How can I stretch out what I had in the fridge and pantry to accommodate all these kids?
Although pizza is a great go-to order when in doubt, sometimes it just isn’t in the cards. Like now, end of February vacation when we’ve been filling the kids days up with with other activities; it adds up!
I decided on soft tacos. What can be better as far as nutrition, and clear out fun for a bunch of kids who want to control their diet, anyway? I bought three pounds of chicken, and a pound of ground beef, seasoned it, and pulled out every manner of pantry item to serve as condiments. It was the perfect plan, delicious, filling-and healthy to boot.
I hope you enjoy these soft tacos as much as we did! Enjoy!
