What’s For Dinner? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with this Taco Night Menu! A simple and fun dinner everyone will love!
Welcome back to another edition of What’s For Dinner! Every Sunday I am posting a full dinner menu idea, in the hopes that it will help make your meal planning just a little easier. Sometimes it’s nice to have a dinner menu thought out for you…and even better if it’s a simple and delicious one! This edition of What’s For Dinner is Taco Night!
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 salsa, a rice side dish and grilled pineapple for dessert. Delicious.

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).
And 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!
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.
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.
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.
