Personalized Fun Food

Tacos are always fun! The best part about them, is that everyone can personalize them the way they like. So, if you’re cooking a dinner for one, two or a group, you can double or even triple the recipe and choose the ingredients you like best. 

If you’re more of a crispy taco shell fan, simply swap out the soft flour tortillas for your favorite crispy tortillas. You can also crisp up your own tortillas over the stove with a drop of cooking oil, if desired. If you’re a taco lover but are on a gluten-free diet, turn your taco into Taco Bowls made with quinoa for a gluten-free meal. 

If you want to make your tacos vegetarian, omit the ground beef or replace it with tofu or your favorite cooked beans.

Rice in Tacos

If you haven’t tried adding rice to your tacos, you’re missing out! The rice adds a hearty and fluffy texture that makes your meal that much more balanced. If you’re worried that adding rice will add to the overall cooking time, you shouldn’t be. Simply use Success® White Rice, which cooks up in 10 minutes, and dinner will be ready in no time. Made without preservatives or additives and Non-GMO Project Verified, it’s an ingredient that you can feel good about serving. 

To give your rice a bit more flavor, cook the grains in chicken, beef or vegetable broth or season the cooking water with taco seasonings.
