Pig in a Taco

Everybody loves taco night, so why not jazz it up with this tasty version!

For busy moms like me, taco night is an easy end to a busy day. We serve them family style, with all the fillings in different bowls, so everyone can make their own, just how they want it.

This is a great tip, if you have picky eaters on your hands. When my children feel like they helped make dinner, or assembled their own plate, they are more likely to eat what is served.

I like to use the ready-to-eat bagged salad mixes. They save time, since the mix is already washed and chopped. There are so many great varieties to choose from.

It’s a great way to introduce new leafy green veggies into your diet. For example by using a bagged mix for these tacos, my kids ate a little carrots and cabbage too, without any complaints.
