My kids love Tacos. In fact, my oldest reminds me every week that we need to have tacos on Tuesday. When were stationed at Fort Bliss,
I learned from some good friends how to fix tacos and other authentic Mexican dishes “the right way.” Well, we followed the trend of having Taco Tuesdays and it kind of just stuck!
I would occasionally spice up the tacos a bit by making a nacho taco meal or even soft shell nachos. However, after serving tacos for so long, I decided to kick it up a notch and try something new. Well, kids have a tendency to strike down change because they become creatures of habit, but I enjoy creating new twists on the same old meals. Well, I surprised my kids by coming up with a compromise and another winner for me because it is perfect for the Instant Pot!
