Between extracurricular activities, work, sports, and play dates the role of mom can be both the most rewarding and demanding job in the world. So figuring out what’s for dinner should be quick and stress free for a change. I have teamed up with the beautiful sisters, Mia and Sante, from Leave It To Mama for a fun summer series featuring mom-friendly recipes and family time ideas the little ones will love.
For this installment, we wanted to feature a recipe that was healthier, simple to prepare, and something all of our kids could enjoy. After collectively brainstorming through our mental recipe books, a taco bar seemed like the perfect idea.
In my household, we kept it pretty basic: ground turkey burger, shredded cheese and carrots, romaine lettuce, sautéed corn, and soft shell tortillas laid out assembly line style for easy taco creation. The nice thing is - I only have to cook the turkey burger and corn while still providing a filling whole foods meal in the end. Lately my daughter has been on the picky side with her choices in food, so this was a good way to give her a variety of options to pick from.
I’m able to have the meal ready in about 30 minutes, which works well with my busy schedule and my husband’s never-ending hunger. Taco bar will definitely stay in my personal go-to recipe book and I can’t wait to try different ingredients and table settings.
