One meal that I can always get my picky eater kids to eat is tacos. However, I can only handle so many breakdowns about broken taco shells from my kids.
One of my favorite meals are our Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos, so I thought that I could just apply that same technique to our taco night . . . and it was a smashing success.
We didn’t have tears over any broken taco shells and everyone cleared their plate. That is definitely a mom win.
It came together in minutes, and it tasted so yummy. It is adult and child approved (and both are pretty picky).
can i prepare these the night before and bake it the next day?
This recipe is great for making ahead of time, keeping in your fridge, then making later the next night.
The tortillas may be just a little more soggy, and not keep their crunch as well, but you could make it the day before and it will still be delicious.
We recommend watching it carefully as it bakes, because it may take a few extra minutes to heat all the way through.
could i make this with ground turkey instead of ground beef?
This recipe calls for ground beef, but you could easily replace it with ground turkey. We recommend using ground beef, because the flavor is a little richer but ground turkey is a healthier alternative that would still work great.
You could also use really any other type of favorite meat you like to put in your taquitos. Here are a few others we recommend trying as well:
- Ground Chicken
- Turkey Sausage
- Chicken Sausage
- Shredded Chicken
- Grilled Chicken
- Pulled Pork
