When we first got married, I made tacos... I don't know, probably every week! My husband started to call me Taco Julie and pretend to speak Spanish to me. He asked one day why I love to make tacos so much. I said it was because growing up, tacos were the MOST fun meal for me, and we hardly ever had them. When I got my own household, I went crazy enjoying regular taco nights!
I've managed to expand my meal repertoire a bit since then, but I still enjoy a good taco (I even had INTENSE taco cravings when I was pregnant!).
So I'm thrilled to talk about Ortega products in this post and share my awesome meal with you! Ortega sent a lovely meal collection of their Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells, Taco Sauce and Taco Seasoning (40% less sodium!).
Tacos are a great meal for bringing a family together to assemble their own meal - for little kids, it's kind of like getting them to 'cook' without the cooking part! And tacos can be really healthy if you add lots of veggies and use reduced fat cheese and sour cream! Or try different kinds of tacos like fish tacos (which I love!).
For this review, I decided to try the Taco Casserole recipe (see full recipe here and many more awesome recipes!). Because you know, one thing I don't like about hard shell tacos is how easily they break, sending your taco filling everywhere! So I figured I'd start off by breaking the shells!
