I saw this idea floating around Pinterest and it seemed like a really good idea for my family of five. I think it would be great to have a large dish of tacos ready for the taking on Super Bowl Sunday too! At my house, it allows everyone to sit down at the same time on taco night instead of waiting for each person to fill their taco with meat, get their cheese AND preparing tacos like this eliminates the worry that the meat and cheese is going to run out! I can evenly divide everything and heat the shells all at the same time.
Once heated, you can add the toppings or you can let everyone add their own. I usually add the lettuce (and mix in a little spinach) to the whole dish (after heating), since that’s about all my kids will eat on their tacos.
But I like to add extra sauce, sour cream (or plain yogurt) and cilantro to mine.
My little man loves some tacos! He was shoveling it in with both hands.
There is no real recipe to this, just prepare your taco meat/filling as you normally would. Then add the meat to the taco shells. Line the shells up in a casserole dish and top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese is nice and melted.
It comes in handy when feeding a crowd…or just 3 hungry kids!
