We are well into the football season which means that our food menu has also changed. I’ve always talked about the importance of spending time with our familia. In our home, food is one of the things that brings us together and currently my boys are really into game day foods. However, my time in the kitchen is limited since our son also plays football. So anything that’s easy to make and keeps them satisfied, gets added to our meal plans. I also enjoy that most of these recipes are not very messy. Am I the only one with kids that can manage to create a mess out of thin air?
One of our favorite game day recipes is walking tacos. I never heard of walking tacos until we purchased one at one of my son’s football games. To think that such a simple concept could be so yummy! My son loves eating these, and during football season I make sure I make them more frequently. I still can’t believe how quickly he’s growing up. *sigh*
Game Day Recipe: Walking Tacos
1 lb. of ground beef
1/2 onion diced
1/4 cup of taco seasoning
3/4 cups of water
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
Nacho cheese chips (8-1 oz bags)
Chunky style salsa
Shredded cheese (taco blend)
I typically set up a taco bar area, so everyone can make their own. It keeps the food contained to one area which makes cleaning up a bit easier.
