Make Taco Night at Family Favourite!

Taco night is a night my kids always look forward to!  There’s nothing better than assembling your own dinner with all of your favourite toppings.  The kids love it, and so do my husband and I.  This weeks menu for tacos includes the main dish of tacos, plus a homemade salsas, a rice side dish and grilled pineapple for dessert.  Delicious.

Taco Night Essentials:

Flavourful Taco Meat

I like to make ground beef tacos for our taco night.  If you need to know How To Make Ground Beef, you can check out that post (it also includes 6 more recipes to make with ground beef).  Or if you want to try something different, ground turkey is delicious in tacos too!

How To Make Ground Beef

Make your own seasoning!

To season the ground beef, you can either buy taco seasoning or make your own.  I prefer to make my own, and use this recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning…it’s SO good, and much more flavourful than the store bought kind!  I will make a big batch and keep it in my spice cupboard for easy use.

A delicious side dish or taco filling:

This Green Chili and Cilantro Rice is a great side dish for tacos.  You can either serve it on the side, or add it right to your tacos.  It’s really yummy.

Make some homemade Fresh Salsa!

When I can, I like to make fresh salsa for our tacos.  This Fresh Tomato and Mango Salsa is a really great recipe…I like the savoury ingredients paired with the sweetness of the mango.

Don’t forget dessert!

And for dessert, this Grilled Pineapple and Vanilla Ice Cream is perfect!  My kids go crazy over grilled pineapple.  The pineapple in this recipe is coated in cinnamon and sugar, then grilled on the BBQ…major deliciousness.

A complete and delicious taco dinner!  I hope you love it.
